Allergic reaction in buttocks, itchy at night. Could it be flea bites?

Hello. For about a week now I have had what I think is an allergic reaction to something. The only area affected is my buttocks . Not anywhere near my anus ...and it only itches at night. When I scratch , little raised bumps appear. I m worried as to what it could be. We had a small puppy and I wonder if there could be an allergic reaction to flea bites?

In view of symptoms , rather than allergy it can be fungal infection or scabies.

Allergy wont cause itching only at night.

I guess a visit to doctor can help to confirm this.
