Hi, I have been having what appears to be some kind of bug bites. It starts out as a small inflamed bump and then starts itching and gets to be about a quarter sized bump. Then it flattens out and gets a bruised purple appearance. It started on one ankle and then I got some on the opposite leg. Then I got one on my stomach and one on the back of my thigh. Now, I have 3 across the first ankle and it looks like little blisters are on the bites . We checked for bed bugs, but didn t see any and no one else has any bites. I can t find anything that looks like it online.

My three year old had red bumps on her buttocks that started with what looked like a bug bite. Over a week, it spread around her buttocks (only there) and they became itchy. They have now cleared up, but now my son has bumps around his buttocks that seem to be spreading. Any guidance on what this could be?

I woke up with a bump on my leg a little below the mid calf area a couple days ago when I first noticed I didn t see any sign of bruising around the area the next day I had a dark blue bruise over the bump and 2 little scabs somewhat close together that look irritated around the scabs and looks like something may have bit me but when I researched different bug bites I couldn t find any that matched the way the bump looks. I didn t injure myself on anything that I can recall. The skin isn t warm or swollen around the area but I was wondering if it could still possibly be a blood clot or some kind of bug bite. Or if you had some insight into what may have caused it
