I've been getting these "bumps" for years now and I just can't find a solution. It can't be bugs, no one in my family that I live with has gotten them.. you'd think over 15 years they would get at least one.

I get at least one a day, sometimes more. I don't think I've ever had more than 4 or 5 at one time. The bumps look exactly almost like my reaction to a mosquito bite, or this skin ****k test picture
The bumps are usually round like that, and white. (And usually surrounded by red because I scratch them.)
However, I ONLY get them on my face and neck and the upper part of my chest/back. Never anywhere below that. And only on certain areas of my face. Sometimes if I scratch my skin accidentally a bump will develop, but it is not like dermatographism where you can write with huge patches. It's just a bump...
It's really embarrassing and shows up at random times, usually on my cheeks. I just want to be rid of it. :( It really seems like I got bit by a mosquito, but when it happens in winter I get strange looks...
