Itchy painless bumps on elbows and shoulders. What are they?

I have these very itchy bumps that started off looking like mosquito bumps until i scratch them then they look like chicken pox . They dont hurt and they are appearing in twos. I have them mainly on my elbows and shoulders. When I first began getting them a week ago they were also on my wrist , just below my knuckels and a few on my feet and legs. What is this??
