  • Go buy some Witch Hazel. Rub it all over the bumps. It will stop the itching.

  • Do you have any pets?? I would suspect fleas if you do.

  • Could be dust mites too. Wash your bedding!

  • I absolutely hate saying bed bugs, but that could be it, also chiggers...spiders? Check ur home, and your room, to make sure there are no open spaces from which little critters can come in from the outside.

  • I should have offered a solution also, sorry. Dr Burt's Resq ointment is great for bug bites. It's a little green tin, and is really great. Also you might try hydrocortisone cream...although that has never really helped me, or Caladryl lotion

  • Chicken pox? Even if you had them as a kid it's not impossible to get them twice.

  • Have you taken any Benadryl yet? Normally the first thing a doctor will tell you for an allergic reaction or bug bites is to take benadryl. Calamine or an anti itch cream will help. I have also used clear nail polish on bites before if I dont have anything else and it stops the itching pretty quickly and will get you by till you can get to the store.
