Ok so every so often I keep getting these bites/rashes on my body.  Does anyone get these too and is there any cure?  Also if there is a specific name for this condition It would be useful!

    Do you have any pets? hoover the mattress regularly and turn over it over. Take antihistamines to cool itching and reduce allergy/bites and use aloe Vera gel . If n England you can buy from 99p shop. P.s you can get cheap antihistamines don't buy well known brands, get shops own brand!

      A cat but I've been arounds cats all my life and I have never really experienced this rashes as much.  I remember I would get these rashes a lot when I was outdoors in the hot weather in the garden........  Is there anyway to find out if you are allergic to something.  Could I be allergic to other pets if they are sitting near me even outside??

    Yes you can be allergic to animals that just sit near you outside. Animal allergies are a reaction to the danger (sluffed of skin cells). The rash seems to be in localized areas though which allergiez don't typically do unless in areas that touch the item ie if your allergic to your laundry detergent you may only break out where your clothes where touching you and sweat wok make it worse. If the "bites" are raised and hot to the touch it maybe a skin infection like boils or MRSA of its blister like and clear liquid comes out they itch yet feel like razor blades and you have had chicken pox it may be shingles. For either of these you should see a doctor. Boils and MRSA are contagious and shingles will come and go the rest of your life (stress can trigger them), in that case you will need antivirals that you take as soon as symptoms appear. The only other thing I can think it might be is flea bites, you might want to check you cat and carpet of so treat both your cat and house and it should be resolved.

    Hope this helps. Keep us updated.

    Ok my marks are okay at the moment and the cat is still around me like normal.  I was wondering If I could be allergic to dogs and is there anyway for me to find out this for sure?

    I had chicken poxes years ago when I was five.  I am now over 30 so that was years ago.

    What happens is as soon as these appear they are usually very itchy and end up like small swollen boils (clear puss weaps from them).  After a couple of days they calm down but If you can't help yourself from scratching they end up bleeding!!

    Hi. Did you ever find out what these bites are caused from? I know this was a post from over a year ago, but I am curious to know.
