Red bumps on lower back, arm, and stomach

18 year old, male. Roughly eight weeks ago my girlfriend noticed that I had little red bumps (about five of them) on my lower back. They had little scabs on them like they were healing. I saw my doctor and he said they were insect bites. I was skeptical and so a couple days after that I got some of the same bumps on my shoulder - again about five of them - and even more recently one on my stomach. The bumps almost look like someone put a cigarette out on my skin. They do not itch, they do not puss. When I find them they simply have a scab on them, the scab falls of and then they are still on me.I have checked my bed, which is nearly brand new, for any type of bugs, but have found none. The fact that these bumps are somewhat in clumps leads me to think it's an infection. Ultimately, I just want them to go away! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will leave some links that contain pictures of these bumps. Thanks a lot.
