Itchy, bumps on skin, clear fluid on squeezing, scabbing, had been to the beach. What could this be?

I have these rash , little bumps on my skin, they look like mosquito bites when I itch them, they are very itchy. I have 5 on my stomach, 3-4 on both feet , two on each arm , and a few on the back of my thighs, I m in Portugal for vacation, I ll be going home friday, but this still worries me. I ve been putting ointment and searching for what this could be. My first though is bed bugs, but the bites are many, and I ve checked my bed twice, I see nothing. I ve squeezed a bite or whatever it is that s on my foot , and there s a clear fluid coming out of it. Most of my bites have scabs already, they are itchy the most at night. I went to the beach in Spain, Vigo, and my sister and I where the only ones at the beach, laying, and we re the only ones to have it, I though sandflies, but I contuine to get new bites, they ve stopped showing up now. What could this be?

Thanks for the query,

You might be suffering from a condition called as urticaria.

It is an allergic condition.

There must be a particular food or any other item with which you are getting this allergy.

Even a new cloth or change in environment can cause this.

Try to notice it and eliminate it.

Treatment is with anti histamines like cetrizine.

Steroids might be required if it is severe.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
