I am getting bitten by something. I have red itchy bumps on my legs, arms and body and I don't know whats biting me! they look like mosquito bites, but are much much more itchy! They take a few days to go away, but the spot stays itchy for ages and I end up scratching the skin away until it bleeds and its STILLL itchy! What could be biting me. I haven't seen any fleas in the house and we don't have dogs or cats.
Please advise if you can.

Thank you!

Karen, does it only happen at home and not at work? Are you sure it isn’t due to an allergy or contact dermatitis due to a new washing powder or something? Let me know as a new question and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.
