Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the generalized itchy red bumps on your body. From the suddenness of symptoms and the appearance of the rash, it looks like a viral rash or some allergic reaction. Apply calamine lotion on the rashes as it will help in soothing the skin and consult a dermatologist for examination.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
