red itchy painful bumps

Two days ago, I took half a pill. The next day I started to get red bumps/spots on my hands, feet, and my face. They hurt when touched, and itch when not touched. It seems to be getting worse. Is it because of the pill I took? Because my friend took the other half and he said nothing happened to him.
I don't want to go to a doctor yet, because I don't want my mom to find out about the pill. However, if this continues, than in a week I will go to a doctor. That way if I get drug tested, I'll pass it.
What can I do about the red bumps?

I recommend that you go to the doctor sooner. I don't see any reason why they would drug test you or how your mother would find out... But if you insist on waiting , then consider taking something like reactin or benadryl   Might be an allergic reaction (hives). but again, medical attention would be best especially if you develop a fever.

I am no doctor, but it sounds to me like you have hives, brought on by an allergic reaction to the pill. There is drug induced rashes. You really should be seen by a doctor. Don't wait till the pill "passes" You shouldn't keep that tid bit of information from your doctor. I don't know how old you are or where you live, but depending upon that, you could be seeing the doctor by yourself. I would also recommend not taking pills that don't belong to you. It can be very dangerous, especially if you don't know what kind of effect they will have with your system. I have lost some very dear friends who opted to take pills that were not prescribed to them
