Woke up Sat morning with red bumps, what is it from?

Saturday morning I woke up with two raised bumps on the top side of my left wrist. They are about an inch or so apart and are red. They only itch when I touch them or something rubs across them like my sleeve. I have been putting polysporin on them since Sunday. The bumps seem to have become more prominent but the redness has gone down quite a bit.

Could I have been bitten by something at night?

It certainly sounds like you were bitten by something. By any chance, have you changed detergents? Sometimes that can cause the rashes, itches.
I've used the sane detergent for a long time, so I don't think that's the issue. It is possible I just got bitten by something. It seems to have reduced in redness. I've been applying polysporin all day as needed. I'd post a picture but I'm not sure how or if that's even possible.

I believe that is the case, I would look through your hed room.
Yeah I thought I'd do that. I was worried about bed bugs but I looked online to see what I should look for and I don't have any noticeable signs of anything serious. Do house spiders bite? I know I've seen those around my room but they seem harmless.

That would be my first thought -- that this is insect bite, mosquito perhaps.
