Becoming desperate for answers

For the past several months, at least once a week, I get these bumps all over my legs. I sometimes get them elsewhere, but almost always the back and sides of my legs. I also only get them when I'm already my computer, which is in the basement. I rarely leave the house, so whatever is biting me (if they are bites) is in the house.

My mom thinks they're gnat bites because we see them flying around a lot, but we always have, and I've never gotten bit like this. Even with pants on.
They itch so bad, and usually last around 2 - 3 hours. Never longer than that.
