Mosquito bite-like bumps on my face constantly


Q: I keep getting this mosquito bite-like bumps on my face. They itch, and at least ten have shown up on my face (at separate times, of course; there's currently one on my chin, there was one under my eye this morning, one on each cheek during the afternoon, another one under my eye, on my chin, and near my temple last night) and I don't really think they're mosquito bites, since I live in California Bay Area which doesn't really have a lot of mosquitoes. I've never been bit so much, and only on the face, before.

Symptoms:  Mosquito bite - like bumps on face, itching, redness on face
