What do you think I got bit by?
About two days ago, I was sitting on my couch and I started feeling irritation on my back. I looked in the mirror and noticed I was getting 3 white raised bumps and redness. I typically get those when I am exposed to certain allergens. The day after I noticed I had gotten one single bite on my upper arm.
I have since put Bactine on it and bandaged it. What do you think I got bit by? I don't think I've ever gotten an allergic reaction to a bite before. Do you think it was a spider or mosquito?

What you are describing seems like they are hives and not necessarily bites. Hives are usually caused by a systemic allergy. So maybe your couch is filled with house dust or maybe there is actually something biting you. If its caused by allergies you would probably need to get tested to see what you are allergic to.

More than likely, it was some kind of spider bite. If it was a mosquito bite, it would itch.

Bedbugs often bite 3 times in a row. I think you should check your couch.

Spider. Fleas. Bed bugs. Just some thought.
