Itchy welts on buttocks, hips, thighs, look like bug bites. Due to allergies?

I ve been waking up with itchy welts on my lower part of my body ( buttocks , hips, and thighs). They look like some type of bug bites, but I ve check my bed for bed bugs. Didn t see anything; yet, went ahead and stripped the bed of everything to wash. Still finding these welts on my body. To describe myself, I m a 30 year old, 5 9 female weighing over 200lbs. I have no know allergies that I m aware of so far. No significant medical history. So if someone can give me an idea what I may be suffering from, that would be nice. Thanks in advance.

hi,
it is tough to recognize your problem without inspecting..
there are chances that you may have scabies.. in scabies itching increases at night..
check if people in you house also have similar problem.. i would suggest you go to a dermatologist as soon as possible.. he would inspect the lesion (rashes) and give you medication accordingly..
thank you
