Small itchy bumps on the neck. Recovered from pneumonia. What could this be?

Since yesterday I have very, small somewhat itchy bumps on neck , there were two and today probably 10, neck is a little red. Bumps are easier to feel versus see. Husband has none. Recently got over borderline pneumonia about 3 weeks ago, not using any new products and no new meds, been at the nursing home visiting dying friend who has a temp. Not as large as mosquito bite. Stress live increased

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having prurigo simplex.

It may be due to irritants, allergens,stress,insects,food,internal disease,weather..etc.

Take antihistaminics like levocetirizine daly at night till itching is relieved.

If poor response, you may take steroidsin tappering dose under cover of antibiotics.

Local mild steroid cream would be helpful.

You might be benefitted.

However, you consult dermatologist.

I hope you got my answer.
