Bites on legs and feet, itchy, swollen and red. What could it be?

I got these bites on my feet and legs, realised that they were there and they became extremely itchy, red and swollen. Some of them now look like red patches but the worse ones look almost like bruises. There isn't very many but still very irritating. I thought it was something in my bed so changed my sheets etc. Then washed my dog and gave him the flea gel on his neck! any idea what it could be?
