Unknown Reaction Persisting A Week and Worsening.

It started after I stayed at a friends house out in the country last Wednesday night. We stayed in doors the entire time. The next day I had a few red blotches on my arms when I woke up, but didn't pay it any heed. Stayed for another night and then by Saturday my arms had random bumps scattered around.
By Sunday it looked like I'd be mauled by mosquito on my elbows.I've tried Calamine, it does nothing. I've tried Cortizone, it relieves the itching for a bit, but it doesn't more bumps from coming it or the persistent itching. (I've been using as prescribed on the box for almost 3 days.

We have no clue what this is and I have no insurance.I have a high allergy to dust and dust mites and it's only one my arms and maybe five in total at my ankles where my pants end. Should I go to the ER or something?
This is one of my arms
