Thursday morning my 2 year old woke up w/ a pretty large, hard red welt on the back of her knee. When she woke up from her nap she had one on the upper part of her arm. By bedtime she had another one on the side of the same knee. They did not seem to bother her but had scratch marks on them later on. I took her to the dr. where he glanced over at her and said it was a bite...that was it! Sunday she had another one on her other leg and this morning woke up with another one on her other leg and one on the back of her shoulder. Yesterday I noticed what looked like a possible mosquito bite but when she woke up it looked the same as the rest of the bumps. I have researched bed bugs and can't find any proof that's what they are. I can't find anything online that looks like what she has. Does anyone have any idea what the welts could be?? please help!

  • I have had this twice in my life. Last year I was outside by the spa. I felt the bit. Smacked it. Something small and black but could not tell what it was. Took weeks to go away. Got 5 last night on my neck and shoulder. I was sleeping and felt something, like when you have a tag on your shirt itching. Took off the shirt and went away. It was the middle of the night so never looked. NOTHING relieves the itching. Doing cortisone now and itch cream. Does nothing. Obviously it is all over the US, as friend of mine in OH, had the same thing. No one can tell me what it is.
