Hard to say.: What bug is feasting on you is hard to say most of the time. Very few bug bites are unique to a particular insect. It depends on where you got them, and the season of the year, as well as the time of day, often. Some bugs are more common in some countries or states than others. Others are more likely in forests or beaches or deserts. Others can be associated with pets, like fleas.

Possibly more: antihistamines, or steroids, this would require the exam and treatment of your doctor to be sure.
