hi there. i note your history with interest. Insect bite reactions can be of various types & manifest differently depending on the venom, sting, type of insect etc. It may even be a condition called 'scrum-pox' that is viral in origin assuming the 'football' you talk of is 'american football' :) Still, it is next to impossible for anyone to pinpoint an insect...more likely than not, it would be some flea or small flying insect as the bite marks are far apart. please do visit your nearest dermatologist for a clearer picture. cheers & good luck
