It does not look like chicken pox to me.

It looks like an allergic reaction to me.

I would recommend using an antihistamine such as loratadine or fexofenadine to help with your symptoms along with hydrocortisone 1% cream which is also available over-the-counter.

Let me know if you have more questions.

My younger daughter had chickenpox in February. It won’t be any concern?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My cheek which red area are dry.

Usually, the vast majority of adults are immune to chickenpox.

So even if your younger daughter had chickenpox, you may be immune to it or may have a very mild version of chickenpox.
