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 :)
