not wanting to infect my cats, after they left I did a thorough cleaning. at the time, I had no visible signs of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>bites</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> - just a r<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sh <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> was very itch. My cats did not show any signs of fleas then, nor do they now. In the middle of July, after the rash began to look an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>likean> a series of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bitesan> (legs, arms, chest), I went to see a dermatologist. She suggested I had mites (not scabies given where the biting was) &amp; prescribed permethrin.
as the day went on, I counted 35 red, itching, burning, stinging bumps an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thatan> looks <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>like</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> regular bug <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>bites</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> but they don't feel <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>like</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> them.. Some are small, and in a line, I have 15 just on one arm....and some are quater sized or larger, they're hard and swollen and scattered all over. It seems an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thatan> they are spreading and I even have them on my fingers, toes, and the heels of my feet. There's even some in the middle of my back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thatan> is always covered up.
as the day went on these bumps became very itchy and when aggravated, became raised and looked more <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>like</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> bug <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>bites</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>.

I saw a doctor three days in and was prescribed an ointment an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thatan> would also help my excema - it still took a week before the itching subsided.

It hurt a little during an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thatan> day, but after <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> I didn't feel anything. It still looks exactly the same today, four months later. It feels firm. as of a couple days ago, a vein near it also looks swollen. If veins swell. Is this something I need to get medicated? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> could it be?
I get a bug bite sensation, but never a bug sighting. I get an immediate bump <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> looks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>likean> a mosquito bite . It itches for a few minutes but then stops. I get them on all parts of my body. I might just get one at a time or several different areas at a time. It happens when I sleep, when I'm at work, when I'm dressed, when I'm not... I can't find any pattern to the outbreaks, but it does seem to worsen when I sleep which might be due from body heat. I don't have animals.
