May be scabies: It could be another type of infestation like scabies or fleas. However, a mattress cover is not going to prevent bed bugs if you are infested with them. Other possibilities include an allergic reaction to a lotion, soap or laundry detergent.

Agree with Dr. F: If you have not seen the bugs, it would be prudent to see a dermatologist for a proper evaluation.
