hey, i hope someone could help me figure this out.

2 days ago, i have developed these bumps on my body that look like mosquito bites. at first i was convinced that it was mosquito bites but the bites disappear a few minutes later without leaving any mark. i am also worried it might be flea bites (i have never been bitten by fleas before so i have no clue how they look like). i checked my bed, and cleaned the house but these bumps still appear occasionally and they pop out more often after dusk!

my symptoms are:
- bumps appear all over the body
- bumps look like mosquito bite/bug bites
- but they disappear within minutes then reappear at another part of the body
- bumps do not leave mark/scar/itch the next day

i believe i may be allergic to something which results in hives??? i live in this house for months--- few months ago (winter time) i got these breakouts then they disappear. now summer is here and they're back. i don't know if they're bug bites(seem ridiculous) or allergies?!

i have been diagnosed with a few skin conditions-- i have extremely sensitive skin (allergic to sunlight, detergent) but i have been taking care of myself to avoid any kind of allergy reactions. however, i was from asia before i moved to canada- so i might not know what other stuff i am allergic to before coming here. additionally, i live in the city when i go to school but i only get these bumps when i live with my bf which is in a country side (we have a farm!)!
