Yesterday morning about 25 itchy red bumps popped up over my upper arms, torso. They look like hives or mosquito bites. But they itch like hives. I searched all over the bedroom...changed all sheets... no bugs of any sort and hubby has nothing. Looks like an alergic reaction but my question is can this be hives and just are staying with me? Seems they appear in clusters on my chest, upper back and upper arm. Thought they may be fleas (we have two dogs) but we checked each thoroughly and they are on flea medications.

I was at a BBQ Saturday evening but it is strange that I am the only one with these if they are bites of some bug. What the strangest thing is that on my right chest, there are 5 of these bumps in a curved line spread about 1/2 inch apart. I have no other symptoms.

Any guesses? Today they are less itchy than yesterday.
