Bump behind neck, on elbow, itching, rashes. Due to spider bite?

I have a firm quarter sized lump on the back of my neck . I also have a golf ball sized lump on my elbow . they both itch , and they both flared up over night. It s winter here in so I cant say it s mosquito s. And my apartment complex stressed the non existence of bed bugs. The only thing I can think of is a spider bite , but I cant be sure. what could this possible be?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

All your symptoms could possibly be due to an allergic reaction to an unknown sting or bite.

Do ice packing once in 2 hours, apply an elastic compression bandage to supress the swelling. An antihistamine preparation for a few days might be helpful.

If you are concerned, please consult your family physician for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
