Itchy bumps, mosquito-like

I've recently started getting mosquito-like bites near my armpit, the back of my elbow, upper inner-thighs, and stomach. They're not mosquito bites, I'm fairly sure. My mum says that it's probably an allergic reaction to something. I've eaten most of the foods that people are usually allergic to in the past, and nada. I don't think I'm allergic to anything (as far as I can tell), though I've never actually had a test.

I recently got a new mattress (about 2 weeks ago), and about after 1 week sleeping on it, these itchy bumps started to show up. On average, I get around maybe 1-3 per day. I'm also drinking this coffee/tea thing which is suppose to help me lose weight, though I started that over a month ago, and everything seems to be fine (until now).

I haven't been to the doctor yet, but I will soon if there are no solutions for it, and it gets worse.

  • Have you looked into a dust-mite bite reaction? The bites are similar to those of a mosquito bite and the allergy can be treated by an allergist.I've recently started getting mosquito-like bites near my armpit, the back of my elbow, upper inner-thighs, and stomach.

  • yeah, i have bumps on my outer elbow, underside of my arm(near the top), and inside of my thighs. It is very itchy and annoying. i went to the doc and he said to put on this cream he prescribed called betaderm cream 0.1% Betamethasone Valerate 0.1% and it should be gone in 2 weeks, otherwise go back to him immediately. Anymore info on this would be nice, like where it came from and what it is... Thanks
