Itchy red bumps all over body keep appearing

Hello there, I am a 25 year old female from Lincolnshire, England. I have quite sensitive skin mainly from using washing powders and the sun. About 2 months ago I began coming up in a rash on my thigh that looked a bit like bites, I think. I went to the doctors as I was also feeing unwell and they told me it was just the cold virus I had. But about 3 weeks ago they began to appear again but this time not just on my legs but on my chest , under my arm, belly, legs, arms and back. I’m struggling to get a docs appointment too due to working hours etc. The lumps seem to be in clusters in some areas and not in others. They are raised and have like a surrounding red ring to them. They itch for days and take ages to go away. I tried to squeeze one and it looks a little like a tiny white lump comes out then just clear liquid. Then after this they scab over but still itch until they are gone. :( please help me, thank you.
