Possibly......: W/out seeing them, it could be so many things. Maybe chigger bites or flea bites or allergic reaction to seasonal things that have started to grow. Internal allergic possibilities too! Shoe it to a Dr or at least a good pharmacist for opinion. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and/or an OTC itch ointment. Launder sheets & socks in very hot water/bleach. Try diluted vinegar on soles. Best!
