Skin rashes and bumps

About 4 weeks ago, I started getting bumps that are very similar to mosquito bites on my legs and arms mostly. It's itchy and swells just like an insect bite.
I never had this problem before, but some friends suggested that it's bedbugs. I cleaned up my entire room and wiped it down with bleach.

I woke up to no new bumps or bites, but just an hour ago at 9pm as I got home, I started scratching certain areas as it got itchy and new bumps are forming again. I'm tired of getting these bumps as they are itchy and they leave marks on my skin. Anyone have problems like this?? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

you might have to go to the doctor. when I played rugby in high school I had these things that the doctor had to "scoop" out from my legs. it was slightly painful.......

could be an allergic reaction to something. I would consult your doctor to make sure. Cross your fingers it isn't bed bugs.

it could the detergent you are using. I used the same one for years, and when i moved i started to use a different one, and i started to develop a rash similar to what you're describing. I switched back to what I was using before, and the rash went away.

They are hives/skin rashes.

Go to your Doctor and do an allergy test

Most likely it's allergies and like mentioned, it could be detergent/soap.

^Bingo. Check if you've switched detergent or soaps as of recent. If not try an anti-histamine and see if it helps. Could be an allergy.

I had a sun allergy when I was young, it recently came back with hives all over my body. You never know what you could be allergic to.
I.... think I'm a girl...? :eek:
