i have had a recent outbreak of red welts on my body. the main grouping is around my waistline but they have spread a bit to my upper torso. my main concern is if they are bug bites or not. i'm a city gal now but was raised in the sticks so i am familar with redbugs, mosquitos, and fleas. this remind me of redbugs but i have not been anyway where they would be. nobody else seems to be getting these bites though i have noticed a few little welts on the boys but it is nothing compared to mine. i have checked and checked again for bedbugs and fleas but i see no signs of them. the only new factor in my life is swimming in the pool and using a lotion afterwards. so, has anybody had any experience with mysterious bug bites? if it is bugs, i want to stop them. if it is an allergic reaction, i want to find the allergen. if it is sickness, i don't want the kids to get it. please help. thanks.
