Can anyone diagnose these itchy bumps

They started on my neck and behind the ears. I thought maybe head lice but I dont have them.

I now have a few on my hand and inner arms and legs. It's not flea bites or bed bugs as i have double checked but it looks very similar to them. The lumps are extremly itchy and last for several days.

They are also random. Neck is the worse hit.

Are you sure you don't have head lice?

Did you dye your hair or change your shampoo? Shower gel etc.?

No, I had my hairdresser check for me too in case I was missing something but she said I def do not have them.

I did change briefly but that was after the bumos started coming up.

The ones on my arms are so itchy. There is only 3 there but they are driving me mad.

Molluscum? Do they look almost as if they have 'heads', but not, iyswim?

Googled both and neither.

It is not as lumpy as Molluscum and not as red or aggressive as scabies.

The lumps do not have bite marks in centre from what I can see

have you used a different shampoo or anything could it be an allergy ?
