Whats is biting me in the night

I have been getting these small like bumps on my arms and legs mostly. I have been getting these strand of bumps for over 3 months now and haven't found out what is biting me or if i have a skin disease. The bumps tend to get irritated if scratched. However, they do not itch i only notice them my sight. I do sleep in my boxers if it matters. I live in louisiana where its hot and musty 24/7 and have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I don't think they are flea bites mostly because when i get the bumps they tend to be in a cluster never less than 3 or 4 sometimes they make a straight line but the bumps go away after 3 or 4 days without touching them it seems when i touch them or scartch them they last a little bit longer. Take a look at the pictures!!

These can be due to insect bites but if they are very itchy then scabies needs to be ruled out. You should change the bed linen, your clothes and wash them in hot water and dry them in sun. You can also use medicated soaps as well for bathing. Personal hygiene is needed.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
