I'm getting red spots on my back. Itch a little, looks like pimples, but i usually don't get them. My back is covered at Night. Can it be bed bug bite?

Maybe

Insect_bite
If its bedbugs the red spots would be anywhere the bed contacts your skin and sometimes you'll have tiny blood spots on the bed. Notably you'll have red papules in sets of 3 from where the critters ate breakfast lunch and dinner.

What does a bed bug bite look like a giant pimple?

Well....

Pimples
Bed bug bites may cause no sx's/signs in some except for 2 small points where skin was punctured by bedbug. When there's a reaction, it may show from an hour to several days after bite. It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions w clear center. In cases of hypersensitivity blisters may develop. A telltale sign is linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – but that doesn't always occur.

STAPH

Acne
This is a Staph Infection until proven otherwise. Staph can get deadly and real nasty real quick. I have treated over 200 of these in the last couple of years and every single patient thought they had a bug bite. There is a drug resistant staph infection known as MRSA (MERSA). You must be seen today.
