I have gone through the attached pictures (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). The lesions are very active and appear eczematous. This would ideally require topical steroid application for resolution. You need to apply moisturizer three to four times per day and apply Momatasone ointment 0.1 % once daily at night after consulting your specialist doctor. It is preferable to avoid excess contact with soaps, and detergents, and reduce wet work as much as possible.
Is it not contagious? What caused this? So definitely not bites?
As per the pictures attached (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity), it does not appear to be infectious or contagious. The eczematous lesions such as these are most probably a consequence of allergic contact dermatitis, which is something the patient is allergic to, and coming in contact could have triggered it. It is very unlikely to have so many bites for a conscious person.
