I am not sure if it is an isect bite but when I take a shower these red blotchy bites show up like little white spots with red surrounding it. It itches like crazy but only after I take a shower. It started as one then now I have over twenty spots. I was thinking it was just a flea or mosquito bite but after looking at other forums I am confused...please help!
