I cannot comment without knowing exactly what type of sores you are talking about. If you want a second opinion you may visit your local clinic or another doctor, but itchy bumps that come and go often results from inesct bytes and is called papular urticaria. There is not a lot one can do to prevent this apart from protection against insect bites and some ointment to give relief of the itchiness.
