Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction most likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Can you please attach a photo of it?

This might be an allergic reaction to some kind of plant. Hard to imagine so many bites. For sure you would notice it.

I suggest you take some antiallergic medicine like Loratadine or Cetirizine once daily for the time being. If it won't help, you should consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation.

You can simply attach/upload the picture to the reports section of this web page for my review.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
