    i am in tecate, mexico to teach english. last night, i woke up in the middle of the night, and i felt pretty moderate/strong itching on my arms and my right armpit. i felt a big bump on my neck.

    upon waking up, i saw lots (like 50-100) of small bumps on my arms, and the big bump on my neck seemed to be a lot smaller than its previous size. There was no itching at allI think I got this most likely from a bug/s bite/s.

    are these any initial symptoms to any diseases? should i be worried?

    Hives.

    The bump on your neck is indicative of your immune system freaking out about something.

    Find some Benadryl and see if that helps.

    If there is a doctor close by, then that is probably a good idea, but a cheap way to find out if it is just an allergic reaction is to pop a couple of benadryls.

    Good luck with Montezuma.

    it cant be hives, the "welts" are not big enough. They are just miniscule bumps, maybe half a millimeter in diameter. maybe im just being super paranoid, but i dont want to catch some wierd disease

    what are you sleeping in? as in what type of building. I do know that some bugs love certain types of buildings in mexico. like the **** bugs where they leave a welt under your eye because they bit you and then litteraly took a dump in the wound.

    But there are a lot of other bugs that can leave marks like the ones you are describing. Go to a doctor quick.

    Well you either got this sh*t bitten out of you by a lot of little bugs (which has happened to me- 30 mosquito/spider bites in one hot, unscreened night in Italy) or you have something like chicken pocks or mumps or one of those other bumpy diseases. Head over to a doctor or the hospital have them check things out. Even if it is only bug bites if they were poisonous bugs you could be in a lot of trouble.

    If you rub or scratch them do they get bigger? Sounds like something I had earlier this year, bunch of small bumps that turned red and got larger when I scratched them. But mine did itch occassionally. Made an effort not to scratch them and it eventually cleared up. Anyway, I think it was the heat.
