bumps or bites?

Thursday night, 11/1/12, everythings fine.. wake up Friday she's got at least 30 bumps all over her. They almost lot ked like misquito bites.  A couple hours later it tripled, so I gave her a bath. This morning she's got even more. If the itches they get very big. Only itched bumps are red at the skin. Untouched are not discolored.  Also we have two other dogs 5 & 7 same breed, they are fine. As are we and we all sleep in the same bed. It just seems to be the one female. Could this be an allergic reaction or tumors? :-(

This sounds like an allergic reaction. Speak with your veterinarian, have them take a look at it, and likely they will prescribe anti-histamines. The vet may also decide they are pustules due to an bacterial folliculitis and in that case antibiotics will be prescribed.
