What kind of bug bite are these?
Please help. NOT mosquito bites, because I am allergic to them and they blow up to huge welts so it’s another bug. Do you have any suggestions? (No rude answers) :) thanks guys, it’s two new ones everyday. Currently have 21.
I only get them inside, located in New York I’m a very clean person just shampoo cleaned our carpets two weeks ago.

Most likely, they are flea bites. Fleas lay their eggs in your carpet and in your furniture and in your bed. A new crop will hatch out about every week, and the new fleas will begin feeding on you and laying new eggs.
In order to get rid of fleas, you first have to kill all the eggs, and shampooing your carpet won't do it. You need to call a professional exterminator, who has the chemicals that will kill the eggs. .

A brand-new bed doesn't matter. It could have hitched a ride on your clothes. I really hope it's not bedbugs. They are very hard to get rid of. People on Answers are not a good source of info, BTW. This Youtube channel has good info. https://www.youtube.com/user/BedBugCentralTV/video...

Do you have cockroaches look on Google at what a cockroach bite looks like yes cockroaches bite. Look up chigger bites. Look up bed bug bites.

If it's only on the lower legs and you have a dog or cat it's most likely fleas.
They also could be jigger bites but they are only outdoors.

As there are several, there is a colony of whatever these are. Fleas and lice are a good guess. Usually bedbugs will bite more than one in a crescent or half circle shape. But that is another possibility. They are most likely infecting your sleeping area and need to wash all our bedding and other clothes near the bed. Also spray the mattress and surround the bed and floor underneath with rarified earth. A non-poison way to kill off those types of bugs.

Could be gnats or fleas.
