Q: red bump blisters

I have been getting red itchy bumps that turn into large grapelike blisters on my body. This happens only in the summer . The blisters look just like the pics of spider bite blisters that are shown on the internet but I have never seen a bug on me.My doc says that they are not bites but a reaction to something. After the blister breaks a dark area remains and looks like a cigarette burn.They appear 2 or 3 at a time and are intensely itchy. IT is driving me crazy. My five year old granddaughter has the same problem  and her pediatrician says it's a reaction to mosquito bites but noone has ever seen a bug biting her either. Please help..

Well are u alergic to something and what causes these red itch bumps to acure? and u say it only happens in the summer weird well if they are itchy and stuff and your doctor says it isn't a bug and it is a reaction. Just call you doctor up and ask him what kind of reaction because are u alergic to bugs? Well if it isn't bugs or a bug bite just put some kind of bug replant on before going outside so that those bugs won't bug u and your granddarugther it seems like you two are allergic to something what is causing this to happen. Well try to get a nettle and poke them and i bet it would bleed and go away or go to a grocery store and tell them i bet they would have something for that hopefullly. Well it must of been a really small bug or a bed bug do u wake up in the mornings and it itches then it your covers or u guys are allegic to something.
