Bug bites that look like cysts?

Recommended Posts

I don't get acne that severely at all, and never really "break out". The equivalent I get are like 1-3 cysts coming out of nowhere, usually simultaneously overnight. They are not visible, but I can feel the skin tightening and hurting underneath if I touch them.

I noticed that this last time I woke up and found bugs crawling around my room (desert climate causes all kinds of crazy stuff), which I had cleaned and sprayed with insecticide a while back.

Could they be my skin reacting to bug bites? They are about 1/3" diameter and are NOT visible unless I squeeze them, then they turn red and scar me for like a week. :(

EDIT: this happens about once a month or so, I'm male so it's not my menstrual cycle or anything. lol
