Hi. I've got tiny, red, itchy bumps all over my body and have been trying to figure out what they are. I first noticed the bumps a couple of days ago on my legs. At first I thought that they were perhaps just mosquito bites. However, I've had many mosquito bites before, and they look nothing like what I have now. Also, I've thought that perhaps it was an allergic reaction to something I've eaten, but my diet hasn't changed at all in recent days, and as far as I know, I haven't eaten anything that I've never had before. Over the next couple of days, I've been getting more of them and they have spread all over my body - legs, arms, torso, and back. They are all tiny, red bumps that itch a lot. I've put on some hydrocortisone cream and have taken some benedryl to help alleviate the itch (which helps a little). The itch is pretty consistent throughout the entire day. Please help me to determine what may be the cause of these irritating bumps. Thank you.
