    Are you sure its mosquitio bits or bites of some other sort
    (Original post by Kindred)
    I would expect it's fleas or bed bugs munching on you.
    Try washing your bedding, blankets etc. Maybe cleaning the carpet or whatever you were leaning on when you were on the floor. Make sure any pets you have have been flea treated and are not scratching themselves.
    No harm in keeping on showering or washing your face too. You could also try creams or gels like aloe vera.

    Are you sure it's not some kind of allergic reaction. They can come and go quite quickly. Bites usually don't.
    I checked online and they look like mosquitoe bites for sure. Called wheals

    tbh, it would probably be better if it actually is mosquito's biting you as they'd be a lot easier to get rid of than bed bugs.....

    Bites from proper mosquitos are itchy as hell and take several days to go away. Plus you can't just wash them away. Also if they are in the house you would have seen them. Bed bugs on the other hand are very difficult to spot. Dust mites can also bite. Could be any number of insects or a skin reaction if it's just on the face.

    I see your point, I think it could be dust mites becau when I was cleaning today there was a lot of dust.

    Mosquitoes would be easier.
