Bed Bug and Scabies are the top 2 reason for your symptoms. See a doctor. By the way bed bug is resistant to majority of bug killers.

How to make it go away! itchy mosquito bite-like bumps on legs?

Flea bites

Mosquito_bite
On legs only-probably flea bites. Any dogs or cats? Get them flea collars. Buy some Solarcaine spray and hydrocortisone cream and the itching will be stopped.

What might this be? an itchy rash like cluster of bumps on my lower back just above my buttocks. It looks a lot like a bunch of mosquito bites.

How long?

If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some OTC antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. Otherwise topical hydrocortisone cream should be tried. If it still did not work, see an allergist.

Bed bugs / insects

Open-uri20121019-31638-ek69qe
insect bites in a row as you describe can be from bed bugs or other insects. Treat symptoms if needed. Best to locate the source so that you can avoid them in the future. If they persist or worsen visit your doctor.

Whats the cure for mosquito bite bumps all over the skin itchy?

Reduce Symptoms

Open-uri20130322-22926-9hy4d1
No good "cure", but you can do a lot to reduce symptoms, generally with topical remedies. Start with diphenhydramine cream or topical anesthetic "sticks". Better is prescription strength steroid cream. Some argue for topical raw (freshly sliced) onion! Works for bee-stings too. For truly "all over" bites, consider an oral steroid, but this is a prescription you must get from your doctor.
