Stinging welts on body while sleeping, itching, bumps have black center. Due to bugs, mites?

at night when i am sleeping i wake up to stinging welts on my arms, legs, back and other areas of my body. The areas very where the stinging occurs. Then it starts itching and it swells around the infected areas. The itching gets excessive at times. Then the welts turn int bumps that have a black mark in the center of them. I have checked my mattress and bed for bedbugs i do not see any around the crevice of my mattress or hiding in the corner of my bed. My husband sleeps with me and does not get these symptons. Could i be allergic to something or is something else is going on when i sleep at night. Could some type of mite be causing this problem. email sasche08 @ WWW.WWWW.WW

Dermatologist 's  Response
Either it is bed bug hypersensitivity or simple urticaria.
It is not easy to find bed bugs. To make sure change your cot and bed linen. If the lesions do not appear, it is bed bug hypersensitivity. If the lesions still appear, it is urticaria.
Consult a dermatologist and meanwhile you can take antihistaminics and soothing lotion like calamine.
