I would think that the likely cause for the same is some sort of an allergic reaction.
This may be due to use of a local cosmetic product or a soap etc.
I would recommend changing your skin care regimen to include only hypoallergenic products, and using a 1 % Hydrocortisone cream for immediate relief in your symptoms.
