Note: I went to the ER two days before I developed these 'bites.' I was having GI problems from an unlisted side effect from a laxative - I was having anxiety that caused GI problems beforehand.
Three days ago, I woke up with what looked like bug bites, or a break out (I'll call then 'bites' for now, 'cause I have no idea what they are) - a few on my left arm (inner & outer - a few of them were in a row) two on my right arm, a couple on my left leg, and none on my right leg. They did itch, but I refrained from scratching them. They're small and red or pink - some of them look like mosquito bites, some look like a small red dot.
The next day, I developed a few more on my left arm, more on my left & right leg, a few on my upper & lower back. Still itchy.
The next next day: I woke up with more, BUT - the first series of 'bites' I woke up with are beginning to fade. There's more on my lower back (especially around my waist line where my pants would begin.) They're looking a lot more like mosquito bites, though...even though I haven't been outside as of late.
Today, I developed a few that look like mosquito bites on the back of my arm. (not the arm I got the IV in.) These are the itchiest so far. The bites I got from the recent day are fading.
Maybe...I picked something up from the ER? (Maybe bed bugs or scabies?) Also, I had two 'bites' around the same area (but not near/on) I got the IV needle in. The IV site looks and feels fine, other than some faded bruising. (I haven't had any real fevers or aches as of late - I've been taking my temp frequently since I've developed these.) Also, I'm developing these 'bites' during the day time as well.
I'm kind of freaking out. What could it be?
I can't afford another hospital visit, and I don't have the money to go to the local clinic.
I'm more scared that I might have a Staph infection or MRSA, or something awful. I know it's silly to think, but I keep having doubts/fears.
