I'm having re-occurring red, itchy bumps on my skin. They show up one at a time, usually last for a week, then disappears and another one shows up in another place (including face, arms, legs, butt, hands). I went to a doctor who told me they were insect bites, but I've done all I could in my apartment and still get them. It's been already 3 months and I don't know what to do. Has anyone ever had a similar situation?
I have a similar thing and am trying to figure it out. I had the first spot on my back. I noticed the itching before the spot itself. It went away after a while but ever since I've noticed a few more, still random and single, itchy bumps on my chest and torso.
I've done some preliminary research online and haven't found anything to explain it so far.
I still didn't find what it is, but the 3rd doctor I saw ordered some blood exams. The results came out normal, except for Lyme disease, which we didn't get the result yet. HOWEVER, she prescribed me antibiotics and since I started taking them (2 weeks) I haven't had any other bumps... maybe you should try a doctor (that doesn't just think it's an insect bite... it might take some time to find one like this).
I've been suffering the same thing. Small red, very itchy bumps. I got them last year and a dermatologist did a biopsy and said "probably an insect bite" and had given me Fluocinonide, an ointment. After about a month they finally didn't come back... until this year about 3 weeks ago. I have an appointment with another dermatologist in a few weeks. The itchiness is driving me crazy! Any good suggestions to relieve the itchiness? Nothing seems to work.
I had my first spot on my neck. I thought it was a mosquito bite very itchy. Then I had several more some on my back under my arms legs etc. not many at once. I went to dermatologist. He scraped the bites could not make a definite diagnosis. He gave me triamcinolone ointment and super Benadryl A new spot just appeared on my navel. I thought I was cured but I guess not. My dermatologist also thought it might have been bug bites but couldn't prove or disprove it. Still a itchy mystery
I'm having the same problem too. Not my first time to have this too and didn't find any answer on the net as well.i dont think it's a insect bite but i'm trying to consider the weather. I noticed that they appear when its mere cold.what about yours?
I was dealing with the exact same thing. I had one bump near my tailbone, and I thought it was a mosquito bite. It itched like crazy. I went all day with this annoying itchy bump. At night, when I woke up I was itchy like crazy. In the morning when I got up, I had bumps all over my back, belly, breasts, arms and face. I went into the ER because I was terrified it were something bad and I didnt know if I was going to transfer it to my children. They instantly told me it was hives. I was prescribed a steroid and also bought Benedryl. I took both mediciations right away, and took a three hour nap afterwards. When I woke up from the nap, I could not find one single bump on my body. I am realived because it was very irritable with the nonstop itching all night!
