I've been getting these itchy bumps with a red dot on top over a few days. They appeared in number on several places on my arms and legs. I usually find them when I wake up from a deep sleep. I think sometimes the itch itself wakes me up.
My place is kept clean, no pets, hardwood floor, and no blood stain anywhere on mattress (bedbugs?). They disappear in 2-3 days leaving a red/dark round mark.

This is how they appeared:
1st batch- On the top side of my lower right arm but closer to my elbow-joint. 4 bumps, not in straight line, about 2 inches apart.
2nd batch - On the palm side of my lower right arm, 2 bumps about 2 inches apart.
3rd batch - On the palm side of my lower right arm, around my elbow-joint. 4-5 bumps, not in straight line, about 2 inches apart. At the same time on the top side of my lower left leg, closer to knee. 4 bumps, not in straight line, about 2 inches apart.
Current batch - One on my left pinkie palm side, 2-3 near my left toe, 2-3 near my right pinkie-toe, 2 on my left feet, 1 near my waist.

Please help me identify this insect.
