What does it mean when you have two swollen red bumps on your upper thigh? Could it be an insect or spider bite?

Likely.

Cat_allergy
Have 2 random red bumps on a leg could easily indicate something as common a bug bite. If it is tender or starting to extend the red discoloration beyond where it is currently, you may want to see a doctor to consider possibly infection post bite. Otherwise, if it is simply itchy and inflamed, use a topical hydrocortisone over-the-counter product.

Mollusca?

Open-uri20121125-7798-zsv42z
Your description is consistent with mollusca contagiosum, a common viral wart like skin infection in children. They are benign and usually require no treatment. They can persist for months. Please see your pediatrician for confirmation or alternative diagnosis.

What does it mean when you have red bumps (mosquito bite like) on the back of your thighs and is from biggest to smallest?

Hives?

Open-uri20121018-31808-1fosip4
Bug-bite-like spots can be from many causes such as: bug bites (of course), hives, viral infections, medication causes, hot-tub rashes, heat rashes, reactions to lotions, allergic reactions to various things (including foods), internal disorders (such as kidney disease, auto-immune disease), etc... That means a rash that persists or is worrisome in appearance should be checked by a doctor.

Itchy bumps red on neck will suggest most probabely it is a form of contact dermatitis related a piece of jewelerry like necklace or some thing you wore around your neck.Some gold jewellery have other metals like nickel etc,which can cause contact dermatitis.You can use over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day and if no improvement see your doctor or a dermatologist

I have about 10 itchy red bumps in a straight line like mosquito bites on the side of my neck there are a couple more next to those what could it be?

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.

Out brake of very itchy red bumps in clusters all over legs. Mostly upper back of thighs. Resemble mosquito bites but I haven't been outside Recently?

How long?

Open-uri20130807-29794-fzxzjg
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. If it did not work, see an allergist.
