You may be right.  You may have been bitten by fleas, lice or mites or, if you are a swimmer in fresh water, you could be infected with a parasite called Schistosome.  Medicine for the treatment of all of these is available.

Your best bet would be to see your primary care physician or a dermatologist.

It sounds like you are allergic to something or you have dry skin.  Aveeno Stress relief has worked for my dry allergic skin and I had the same symptoms as you do.
