Itchy, swollen bumps, look like insect bites or hives. Causes and treatment?

I have these swollen itchy bumps that keep reccuring. I have been to the Dr. and they said they were bug bites but could not tell with out a bug present. I have treated my home for bed bugs, spiders tics, and flea but they keep coming back. They look like hives , itch extremely at night and some what during the day. What could this be?

This may be Molluscum contagiosum. It is auto immune disease.
- common in immuno suppressed people. In that case investigation, skin biopsy (only if diagnosis doubtful) & treatment is advised by either dermatologist / general surgeon / general physician. Even though it may take sometime to heal without scar, don't bother.
