i woke up 2 wks ago with 4 or 5 red bumps under my butt cheek that grew as I itched. they eventually meshed together as an upraised, swollen mass. my upper thigh and butt cheek became red and intensely itchy and bumps appeared at the outer edges of the redness. I finally went to dr and she gave antibiotics for cellulitis. I looked it up, and it nowhere does it mention the itching, so i think she's wrong. It's not sore except for the awful itch. I thought maybe a spider bite me and it got infected, but dispite the discoloration, there are not blisters or pus, just bumps. help.
