I have been getting these for a while now...they look like flea bites and I used to get them when I was around cats so I figured they WERE flea bites...but now I get them randomly when I'm at my mom's (no animals or other allergens I can figure out).
 
They almost look like hives. Here is a pic...any insight?
 
 
EDIT: I'm so annoyed this won't post...I hope it works somehow.

It's weird because if it was an allergy...I would think I'd have other allergy like symptoms but the last time this happened I was writing on a piece of paper and where my arm was on the paper, a bump popped up. This time I was just sitting here and my arm is against my shirt while I type...but so is my other arm lol. No logic.

Definitely looks like an allergy to me. I get those when my dog licks me bc I am allergic to her saliva. I also get them when I handle certain fruits with a lot of pollen on them, because of another allergy I have. Do the bumps disappear after a couple of hours? If so, I'd say it has to be from something that you've come in contact with that you are allergic to.

Allergies can start at any time. I had a dog growing up and never had an issue. I even had the dog that I have now and never had a problem in the first couple of years, but in the last few years I've been getting those red bumps when she licks me. I was also never allergic to cats before and was always around them, then suddenly last year I started having problems being near them, where my eyes get puffy. Allergies are weird like that.

I am having similar random small bumps all over my body, like the one in the picture link shared on the initial post. It itches first then the bump pops up. It has been about 36 hrs since it started. 2 days back I went for a walk in the woods and about 36 hrs back I ate fish that caused me severe allergic reaction including light headed ness, confusion, dizziness, watery eyes. These bumps started around the same time when I ate the fish. I am wondering if this could be caused by tick bites, although I did not see any tick on my body or could it be the fish allergies. Also what should I do next?

Hi there
Bites from Chiggers or Harvest mites,which hang around in grass at this time of year could be the cause.My husband used to be convinced that he had flee bites from our dogs until he found out that it was actually these mites--they itch like mad and last a few days usually.

Hi Dougbeth welcome to the forum. I've been getting the same exact thing as described in this thread for years now. I can tell you that at least for me it is not an allergy. I'm sure of this because when I was treating the Lyme with an herbal protocol they ramped up significantly. I'm 99% sure (can never be 100%) it's a Lyme symptom. I also get random rashes as well. I did go to an allergist to check it out and I was only allergic to tree pollen and dust mites and this is not from either I can tell you that.

I started getting these yesterday for the first time and it is driving me crazy! It's not an allergy- nothing in my life has changed (foods, detergent, no new bugs, etc). It's just like I have an itchy spot, then in a few minutes I have a big red raised welt, like a hive or a bite. I started getting these yesterday and I thought it was fleas or chiggers...but then today they have been coming and going and I am not around any bugs (just in my house). I started ramping up my herbal protocol this week (went from taking Byron White formulas just 2x a day to 4x a day, finally figured out how to time that), and now this itching. What could it be?

I'm thinking since you started ramping up your protocol...and quite significantly - that you are herxing.

Can you concentrate on detoxing for the next few days?

INTERESTING.

I have found those on my body and they are most likely from mosquito bites. They welt up like that, cause the entire surrounding to be red and even warm to the touch. And they itch like crazy. Sometimes, there are teeny tiny little welts around the major welt in the middle.

I've never had mosquito bites that look like that before. I don't know if it's the lyme & co or the treatment or diff kind of mosquitos but that's exactly what they look like on me now.
