Is there a tiny "hole" or "spot" in the center of the bumps? If so, they're bites...the fact that they are sore indicates they are probably bites. Put some cortisone cream on them. Or aloe gel.

HI, according 2 the details they are bites, Just consult Ur dermatologist immediately to avoid any harm through it.

Hives are usually red whelps they can be triggered by a number of things. But from your description this doesn't sound like hives
