I am having random small bumps all over my body, like the one in the picture link shared below. 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. Would these be catagerized as hives? Also what should I do next?

It could be caused by either, or by chiggers, or mosquito bites, or allergy to something like poison ivy or poison oak, or any of a myriad of other things. Itching usually responds well to a topical cortisone cream available over the counter, however with your history of serious allergic reactions it would be best for you to see a doctor for diagnosis.
