We get this question a lot this time of year. Its probably skin irritation due to either the heat, dry skin, medications, allergic reaction, etc.
I cannot recommend any pesticide or treatment unless you can actually see the insect and it can be identified. Here is our page on this topic - http://www.epestsupply.com/bugs-insec...

Every year we get samples of "something" that people think are insects biting them. In over 99% of the samples sent, there is only hair, dust, dirt, fuzz, etc. Only 1 sample sent this entire last year was a mite, and it was very visible.
So there is the dilemma. If this is an actual insect issue, mites, chiggers, etc, then if you look hard enough, you will find evidence. If you look hard enough and do not find anything insect related, then the only other possibility is an environmental issue. This could be anything - not just allergies. It could be insulation that has dislodged from an air duct that is causing everyone to itch and scratch. It could be a chemical in the home or A/C system that has suddenly become an issue. It could be plants that causing allergies, indoors or outdoors. It could be something you purchased such as furniture, bedding, rugs, carpets, etc that have chemicals in them that are causing irritation issues. The list goes on.
Finding an answer to a problem that there is a 99% chance doesn't exist will never happen. I am just telling you the facts and trying to convey some logic here. If I told you something just to "pacify" you, it would do more harm than good.
So the bottom line is that no one regardless of how much they know, "thinking outside the box", etc, can help in this situation unless they can identify the source of the problem. If it is an insect, then I have to see it. There is no such thing as an invisible insect, or one so small you can't see it. The next closest thing would be "bacteria". If bacteria is causing the problem, then that becomes an environmental issue.
