itchy bumps...but not chicken pox

Hi, I just have a question to ask about these weird bumps that recently started popping up all over my body. It seems like everyday I discover a couple new ones and the ones I started with are going away. They kinda feel like mosquito bites but I know they're not because sometimes there are 2 grouped together and they itch like mosquito bites but they are just small and red. Most of them are up on my arm and lower back, none on my face and I already had chicken pox so I know that can't be it. I also have a kitten and was wondering if that might be the reason. Thanks for any help

Get it checked out it could be ringworm. Is it shaped kinda like a ring and itches real bad it's prpbably ringworm.

Sorry to here about your condition. Yes I would definitely consider the new kitten as a factor. Perhaps you can try an occasional over the counter anti histamine like benadryl. I would not mess around with it in any case. If it is an allergy caused by histamine I would go to an allergist and ask about cutanious mastocytosis as well as other tests.

Cats can carry ringworm also.
