Stiff red bumps around elbow, forehead. Itching and irritating. Why these bumps have appeared?

Hello, I woke up today and I started itching on my right arm around my elbow. I have had the most irritating itch all day that has left huge stiff red bumps that are about the size of a quarter dollar. There appear to be about five of these bumps and i believe there is one on my forehead as well, but I have been trying not to scratch that one. Please help me I have no clue why these bumps have appeared?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Welcome to healthcare Magic
Red itchy raised lesions over exposed areas which appeared over night most probably is an insect bite allergy. You will get relief with anti histamine tablets like Cetrizine 10 mg once a day and steroid ointment for application twice a day. A dermatologist will be able to help you to identify the insect as we get some clues from the morphology and distribution of lesions. The importance of identifying the insect is for preventing further bites by adequate measures.
Hope this helped
Take care
