Thanks for the query. This presentation can be seen with many skin diseases. The best option is to consult a Dermatologist in person to understand the problem and get it diagnosed. A proper treatment can then be started. Discuss the situation and hope it will be cleared in few days. Don't delay the appointment .Based on your description it looks like a superficial bacterial infection usually caused by staphylococcus aureus. Information about atopic dermatitis can be sought from https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/eczema/atopic-dermatitis
Next Steps
Kindly consult a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and a precise treatment plan.
