Biten: It could be many things. Firstly, make sure you don't have lice or scabies, which are small bugs that can live in the hair and skin. Do the bites leave marks or is it just a feeling?

Allergy reaction: Most probably it is allergic reaction, you may be having feeling of itching and some redness or swelling of skin overhead , face and arms .It may be some allergy to food , soap , cosmetics or anything from environments , since it is pollen in the air.Try some Hydrocortisone skin ointment.
