Can you identify these bug bites or rash on upper thigh?

5986149?1280854656
This bites or rash showed up on my girlfriend's back upper thigh yesterday - they're very itchy.  She's a little freaked out because she's also feeling achy and sore (but then again she goes to a personal trainer 3 times a week).

Any help would be appreciated!

Hello,
From the symptoms insect bites, allergies, hives and scabies need to be ruled out. Scabies is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.
Please consult  a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
