    Hi BO,


    Itching for no good reason is extremely frustrating, isn't it? It's always best to get a doctor's opinion on something like this, particularly since you do show bumps of some kind. Your bumps could be a sign of a bug bite, as you said. Fleas in particular may be a cause, particularly if you sleep with an animal in your bed. Small fluid-filled blisters on the hands and feet could also signal dyshidrotic eczema, which is a kind of eczema that is affected by allergies and stress. Keeping your skin moisturized at night and taking an OTC allergy medication may help with the itch, but if it continues please do see your doctor.
