Hi everyone, I've started to get the following:

bumps that are like bug bites
extremely itchy
skin colored
show up in clusters
areas have been, ear, arm, leg, breast, chest, ankle, shoulder and knee
after scratching and about 3 hours they will disappear but a new cluster will appear

I have cleaned everything, I'm not allergic to anything that I know of, I have not used any product out of the normal, I do not have pets or kids, and no one has been in my bed. I thought I had two spider bites at first, Oh I was SO WRONG!

HELP?!

  • My grandmother suffered with Psoriasis all her life until at the East of England Show she talked to somebody at a stand and decided to try Aalgo, it worked for her and as a lifelong Eczema sufferer I decided to try it as well again with total success. Over the last eight months it has spread from one branch of our family to another and there are now 15 of us all using Aalgo. I think that speaks for itself as to what we think of the product. Its worth a try and i hope it can help you as much as me.

  • I noticed the bumps a few days ago on my arms and legs. They were a little itchy but nothing too severe. I assumed that it must have been bug bites. It probably isn't spiders b/c they usually only bite once. My boyfriend sleeps with me everynight in the same bed and hasn't gotten any bites/spots, so I assume it isn't actually bugs afterall. The few nights after I have gotten more and more spots (the original ones have faded and are hardly present anymore). They seem to be in places that would be very WARM when I sleep (groin area, knees, inner thighs), but also one randomly on my ankle. I really don't know what this is, but I'm going to try to stay cool and apply 'sore cream' or a cortisone cream to them. The worst thing is that I am going to Jamaica in a few days, where I worry they could get much worse. I might go to the doctor tomorrow... any tips/ideas would be very helpful!!

  • I really need to see a doctor ASAPCan I be allergic to SOY, or WHEATI really don't think it is bed bugs, and I changed and cleaned everythingThe night before I got this I ate Spagetti (has wheat) w/ vodka sauce & tilapia. (I don't think it is the tilapia, I eat it occacionally)I also had recently started taking Fiber Pills (they have soy) and I had just ate some FiberOne cereal (has wheat & soy). I had also droped a flovor cube inside the soup the night before this (that has soy)I don't know, I woke up on Friday May 9 w/ my lower face itching....I went out, did some things and didn't notice it much.But once I got home 4 hours later, It started itching alot.To the left and right of my chin, like near my neck right under my face.Invincible, I cant see anything on my face but it itches.Now 3 days later it spread, I see insect like bites all over my body.Mainly on my arms and stomach.They dissapear and reapear in other places, they ITCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....Sometimes they are alone, just one or 2 at a time, but right now I have groups of 10 or more.They are little nearly invinsible bumps, they look like insect bites but they are not.They are clear, they don't get red, may be pink at most, but mainly white little bumps.Tiny, but they itch alot. Just now they are reaching my legs, but not too many.Sometimes I look at my arms and stomach and don't have any, but 20 minutes later I'll have a bunch...Worst part is that they ITCH, alot, I can't sleep, I can't focus, I stress all day about this.And it is only getting worstSomebody help, pleaseLEO037

  • Hello. I think I have the same problem as you do. I have hive like symptoms but no redness and some itching. It doesn't keep me awake but it's still pretty itchy. The bumps spread around my body like they're almost moving around, going away and then coming back after a couple of days in the same spot. Have you found a solution to the problem at all?Oh yeah I also have this bump on my chest that looks like a boil. Maybe antiobiotics would help me out?

  • I've gotten random "bug bites", or bug bites look alike, also, it started about a week ago. The cluster of "bug bites" stay for about couple of hours and disappear than after a bit could be couple of hours or a day or so, a new cluster appears. I have a husband and my daughter sleeps next to me and is with me and they don't get it so I know its not any kind of bugs. I don't know what to do its driving me nuts! And my doctor is on vacation till after New Years, any home remedies recommendations?

  • yeah, i pretty much have the exact same symptoms. i'm in the national guard, and all my problems started in Iraq. we were sleeping on cots, and were able to get some old matresses from some friends that got new ones. so i went out on mission one day and just noticed my shoulders itching all the sudden and one of my forearms itched too. well, i got back to my hooch and my shoulders were swelled up like mosquitos had a feast on me or something and the same thing on one of my forearms. my shoulders were like one big, red, hard bug bite. and my forearm had like 11 hard, red, raised bumps. no oozing or anything like that, just a normal mosquito bite. so i tossed the mattress and washed all my clothes and clean and all that, but they keep randomly appearing. it might be a week before some pop up, or a few days. this happened about 3 weeks before i got home. so i had a sinus infection when i got back to the states, and got some antibiotics for it and they mysteriously went away. i didn't even really notice they were gone until they just now started coming back up again. i don't know what to do. i've heard that there's a staph infection going around that ppl are dying from because they're just mistaking it for bug bites and not going to the doctor. if anyone has anything to add to this, it would be greatly appreciated.
