I don't think they are bug bites, I am almost 99% sure they aren't

They look like bug bites, they appear all around my body. Mainly on my arms and stomach.
I also get a nasty itch on my neck, like to the left and right of my chin area.
This all started on Friday May 9th, here in Miami Florida.

They look like little bites, they are skin colored, and they are magical.
They dissapear, one minute I can have hundreds all over my body, and after half an hour, they can all dissapear, and later on the day or the next day, they reapear on other parts of my body.......

They are really itchy, and seem to bother more at night, when I first try to sleep.
I get itchy on and off during the day, seems like the busier I am, the less I notice.

During the course of this horrible itchy week, my ear has gotten really hot once or twice.
Don't think that has anything to do w/ this issue though...

It can't be bugs biting me because the bite marks dissapear after a few hours.
It is not bed bugs because they aren't too hard to see, and you do find dropings under the sheets if I had some.

What do you guys think it is ?
I have no insurance, where do I go ?
Who conducts the allergy tests ?
Should I see a dermatologists, and how much would this cost me ?

I don't know what to do
It has been a week already and last year I suffered the same epidemic.
Thanks in advance
