    month I've been getting one little bump when itched turns into a welt like when smashed in that area, then become a large lump. When to er and the Dr. said it cause be for a insect bite, and prescribed my some type of steroid and take benedryl . Just took benedryl due to the fact it was going down the next day but a week later have the same problem first it was on the back of my triceps then i got one on the side of my triceps and now one forming on my arm below my shoulder. I weird because I'm the only one getting them and all so once one stop it seem i get it on the same arm different spot and should i add when it get swollen it warm to the touch and very itchy

    Well to me it doesn't sound like an insect bite because it it was a insect bite it wouldn't be disappering alot because a bug bite will just stay there then a week or two later it goes away and if it is itching just push down slateling on your then do again it is like forming an X on your bump and i bet that would help you out or just get some nail pulsh and that should help out to and if u are taking meds and those bumps goes away then comes back into a different spot sounds like u might be alergic to the meds or just that they don't want to leave you lol. BUt to me just keep an eye on them and if they keep on showing go to a germantist and he/she would help u out i promise on that one :)

    I'm having the same exact issue. At first I thought it to be a spider bite but there's no bite site. Went to the doctor and they gave me steroids for swelling and benadryl for itching. Did you ever find out what was causing your issue? READ MORE

      Hi, my son is having the same issues. Every week or so, he's waking up with small bumps that don't appear to be a bite, which then become a swollen, red rash or welt. They last a few days and then disappear, only to happen again. So far they have been seen on his arms, shoulder, and lower back. Did the steroids and benadryl work? READ MORE
