Arms and legs itch. Have bumps. What can help?

I slept at a friends house on the couch. As I layed down five min later my right arm and leg began to itch I switched to my left and then on to my back getting the same results. I have bumps that vary in size on my legs arms back fingers hands foot and toes. They itch really bad as well as hurt and burn when I scratch them. Please tell me you can be of some assistance. It is going on the third day of itching burning and pain from these bumps all over

Thanks for posting your querry.

After reading your symptoms i feel that you have developed itching due to bed bug bites. Such infections cause pain, itching as well as burning sensation which you have mentioned.

I would recommend you to take a strong anti allergic drug, it will make you feel better soon. You must also apply calamine and aloe vira lotion on the sites where itchi9ng is maximum.

If you do not feel better after the antiallergic then you must visit a dermatologist for clinical examination.
Hope you feel better soon.
