Have welts on arm. No bed bugs found. Cause and cure?

two red welts appeared on my arm , a lady had noticed the welts and said it could be bed bugs? However, I searched through all bedding, carpet, and furniture. I was told if an infestation is an occurrence, the bed bugs would be clearly visible..I saw no trace of anything not even a dead one. could it be bedbugs or may something else could have caused these red welts?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Red welts alone could be due to urticaria or mosquito bite or some other insect bite.
I would advise that you take tablet cetirizine and apply calamine lotion over affected area.
Make it a point to use insect repellant or a mosquito net while sleeping or wear fully covered clothes
Hope that helps. Take are
