Something is biting me. Its only in the evenings when I'm outside. I currently live in the middle east (Oman) but I also get the same bites when I'm home in the U.K. It's usually on my legs and arms. They have a yellow blister center that can get to the size of a dime, and it is red, swollen and hard on the outside. Some can get from 2-3 inches in diameter. Itchy and painful. Went to the doctor to treat it but i'm trying to figure out what's biting me so I can avoid them.

Hello
Your condition might be caused by a condition called folliculitis . Folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicles in the skin. It is a common problem that is not usually serious. Tiny pus-filled spots (pustules) develop at the base of a hair, often in crops. Mild cases often resolve without treatment. Sometimes, antibiotic creams or tablets are needed. In recurrent cases like yours, antiseptic skin washes can be used.
I recommed u consult your dermatologist to get you examined and accurately diagnosed 
Thank you
