Many other things also cause itchy red bumps, though, including dry skin, skin infections, liver or kidney problems, medications, allergies to things you eat or things that touch the skin...

I have random tiny itchy red bumps with clear tops that pop up all over my body.

Hives: Sounds like classic hives. They tend to be red, raised, scattered all over and intensely itchy. I would eliminate whatever might be the causative agent. If that doesn't help, then try otc anti-itch topical creams and otc non-sedating antihistamines. ...Read more
