In brief: Many possibilities
There's a long differential here, from seborrheic dermatitis to allergic or irritant dermatitis to a yeast or fungus infection - hives - something called erythema multiforme - the list goes on and on.
A lot depends on how long it's been present, whether it itches, its precise appearance, etc. You really need to have a dermatologist look at it in person.
