Random Onset Of Tiny, Itchy, Pea-sized Bumps On Body. No Sign Of Bed Bugs In The House. Cause?

Hi I have been getting tiny pin sized bump that appear randomly over my body. No one else in the family has them, they are itchy. They last a few days and go away and new ones form somewhere else. There are no spots on my hands. Washed all our lines no sign of bed bugs and as I said my husband is not affected nor my children.

Hi!,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,

The red bumps seems to be some kind of allergic reaction known as papular urticaria.

To begin with you can try taking some anti histaminics like cetrizine tablet (10mg) daily for few days and see the response. Since other members of the family are not affected I would rule out scabies or bed bugs.A detail history and a picture of the lesion would help me further to guide you better.

Hope this answers your query,

wish you good health,

regards,
