Hi...Thank you for uploading the images for better clarity on your problem.

This looks like an insect bite allergy or bed bug bite or a simple form of urticaria or skin allergy which can start spontaneously.

But bed but bites can manifest even after few hours of sleep depending on body's allergic response.

There is nothing to worry about it.

I suggest you use Syrup Benadryl 10ml thrice a day for 3 days and use some emollient topical lotion for soothing.

This will settle the issue.

Thank you. Could these happen because of dry skin also? The thing is if it is bed bug, myhusband should have it too but he doesn’t. I know i have very dry skin and don’t really put on a moisturizer.

Because sometimes After showering I could feel small bump on my hip and once I scratch it, it turn into a bigger bump
Doctor: Sumanth Amperayani, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Hi...this can happen in dry skin and that was exactly what I was referring to when I told you about simple skin allergy or urticaria.

The other name is eczema.

You can use moisturising lotion for this - thrice a day for 4 weeks to prevent recurrence.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
