Post mosquito bite type bumps

Just wondering what this could be... I wake up in the mornings sometimes to find 2 bumps that itch like crazy for like 1 min, then the itch goes away and I am left with what looks like mosquito bites. It only happens after I wake up from sleeping and have appeared on my upper back, lower back, and hand... I am wondering if it could be an allergy, bug bite of some kind, etc... We do have mosquito's here but they don't seem to be mosquito bites to me, and the itch goes away, but the bumps stay for quite awhile, and there are always 2 no more, right next to each other. Anyone have any ideas what this could be from? Thanks

Because it's always two spots next to each other, I'm thinking spider bite or something with pinchers? Do you have earwigs there? Those have pinchers in front and will bite you. Take a look around your house outside and see what's close to the foundation that may be getting in. Eatwigs will be in your dirt. You might want to try spraying around the perimeter of your house inside and also your windows and see if the bites stop. Something is getting in - or is already there and 'visiting' you every night - so spraying may be one solution. We use an odor-free one inside the house as I don't like those smells, and it works like a charm. Maybe even take a good look under your bed and see if something has already set up house-keeping there. If it was me, I'd also spray around the whole bed and see if you get any more bites. If something is already inside your house, walking across this sprayed area will kill it, and not only will the bites then stop, you'll at least be able to see what the heck it is as you'll find it on the floor somewhere.

Good luck.

I too have bumps that are kind of like your talking about but mine come at anytime of the day. I noticed the bumps about 3 months ago and have since moved. So I'm thinking it is not a bug. Please email me if you have been able to find out what you have. Also I have went to the doc twice and neither time has my problem been solved. thanks
