I started having allergic bumps close to a 4 week old completely healed insect bite. (healed but still has a tiny raised bump) What is going on ?

In brief: Expect

Even an uncomplicated insect bite induces inflammation which may take a while to subside.
Even after the acute inflammation has subsided, the body still needs time to clean up the battlefield. Most residual bump should disappear in a few weeks.
