In brief: Doubt it

Bed bug bites may have no sx's/signs except for 2 small skin puncture points.
A reaction may show from an hr to several days later. It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions w clear center. If hypersensitive blisters may occur. Telltale sign is linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – doesn't always occur. Bites are in areas exposed while sleeping-arms, shoulders,neck & legs.

In brief: No

A bite would disrupt the skin enough to leave a reactive mound that would usually last for several days.
Bumps that come and go is short order are more likely allergic in nature.
