In brief: Bug bites?

After hiking, skin bumps may be some sort of bug bite.
It is best to take a long shower, then do a full body tick check, and change one's clothes after hiking near trees, bushes, or tall grasses. If they are bug bites, an oral antihistamine and using a skin product like itch-x and Hydrocortisone cream on the bites can help. If they don't look like typical bites, then a doctor should examine them.
