It looks like papular urticaria or urticarial vasculitis or polymorphic light eruptions (PMLE).
You can try 0.1 % Mometasone cream twice daily over arms and Fluticasone 0.05 % cream once daily over face along with tablet Monteder-L (combination of Montelukast and Levocetirizine) once daily for five days.
If your bumps did not disappear in five days then go for skin biopsy to rule out urticarial vasculitis and PMLE.
You really need regular follow up to dermatologist if your lesions does not subside.
