Getting huge red welts on different places, itchy. What could be this?

I have been getting huge red welts on different places. I ve had about 6 over 4 months. This current is the size of a softball and no bite marks. Other welts previously had small bute marks. It itches a lot. I have NEVER seen any spiders or bugs tho. Our bed is on the floor. However, my boyfriend never gets these welts. What could this be and what should I do?

Thanks for the query,

Probably you are suffering from urticaria.

It is characterised by red raised itchy rashes on body.
Usually the patches are small,
But sometimes large welt like lesions can appear

It is a type of allergic reaction.
You may require treatment with oral anti histamines

Please meet a dermatologist for exact treatment.
