Is there a common disease or known allergen that results in the quick formation of small itchy non pus forming bumps?

Nettles is a possibility.

Sounds like hives. Could be anything from grass to dogs to wheat. You might want to consult an allergist. They can do a multiple allergy test which consists of pricking the skin on the forearm in rows, maybe 3 or 4 rows, a total of 12 or 16 dots, then dabbing allergens one on each dot. It doesn't hurt. Really. It's not an injection so a needle doesn't go into your arm. It's just a pinprick. Then you wait an hour or so to see what dots get raised red bumps. That's what you're allergic to. Another option is waiting until it happens again to see if you can identify the source yourself. Good luck.
