The past few days have been a nightmare of sleeplessness.
A few days ago, my chest started itching like mad. There were a few small bumps along my one breast and a couple on my collarbone, but I get rashes there a lot so I passes it up to another episode of heat rash most likely brought on by my non breathing work shirt.
But its been days now and they're not going away. A few more popped up, as well as one on my arm and one on my side. They itch like crazy and I cannot resist clawing at them to the point where i have actually bruised the skin on my breast from it. The one on my arm only itches when i touch it and the one on my side is more or less the same. But the ones on my chest are driving me insane! :mad:
I thought bedbugs at first since it is an epidemic that has recently hit my area of Canada, but its getting rather cold out, I have found no evidence of them yet, and my boyfriend who sleeps in the same bed doesn't have any of these marks on him at all. I haven't been using a new soap or laundry detergent so I ruled out spontaneous allergic reaction as well. They don't look like mite bites either. It looks like heat rash bumps, but more dotted here and there instead of clustered together.
I would link a picture but it's now pretty much impossible to tell the spots apart from the accidental bruising. I'm using aloe to try to calm the itching.
It keeps me up at night and the sleep exhaustion is starting to kill my work ethic. I would have gone to the doctors but my job gives me no time to myself these days. :(
Is there anything that could be causing it beyond bugs? It seems highly unlikely that I would get gnawed on while my boyfriend gets away un-nibbled.
