Symptoms:  rashes, red bumps
Doctor

A:   You have not mentioned your age, sex or duration of symptoms. Although, with the information provided it looks like you develop rashes mainly at night, while in bed. Since these areas of the body come in contact with the bed, dust mites could be the possible cause of your symptoms. You may visit your family doctor to rule out other (infectious) causes of rashes. However, an Allergy Specialist will be able to confirm your allergy status. All the best!
