Little Itchy Red Bumps on Stomach, Back, Chest, Upper Arms, Hips, & Sides

I slept in my friend's bed about three weeks ago, and ever since then I've had these little itchy red bumps on my chest, back, sides and hips. They almost look like chickenpox, except that they're dry and crusty rather than puss-filled. I should note, too, that I had bedbugs a a couple years ago, and these are not bedbug bites, I know. I've been putting on hyrdocortizone cream and OTC anti-itch stuff and while they reduce the itchy sometimes, the bumps remain. They are also on my hips and they are a couple on pelvis, as well as around the bottom of my armpits and also the underside of my arms. They're just dry, itchy spots that look sort of like razor bumps, though a few of them have gotten larger than that from my scratching them. Any theories?
