I don't know where you live, but it's possible that you got bites outdoors. It's also possible that these are not bites but folliculitis--clogged pores. A third possibility is that you're picking at them. I advise you to apply an antibiotic cream like bacitracin or neosporin (over-the-counter), to absolutely leave the spots alone, and to arrange an in-person visit with a skin doctor for definitive diagnosis and treatment suggestions, if any.
