Recently I've been waking up to find what looks like mosquito bites on my legs and ankle. They are slightly swollen like bug bites and very itchy.
At first I thought it might be bed bugs, but unlike the usual case of bed bugs, the bites/rashes are not clustered and are localized to just my leg area. I did a check of my bed at night before going to sleep and I couldn't find anything. I also did not smell that sweet smell in my bed that is often associated with bed bugs. The bites/rashes do, however, only appear after a night's sleep.
Is there anything else that might be causing this? It is winter right now so I do have dry skin, but this is the first time I've ever had something like this and I've had dry skin before.
