Tapioca-like white bumps on the sides of the fingers usually represent a type of eczema, sometimes called dyshidrosis when it takes this form. Another possibility, especially if it's in a single spot, is a herpetic infection.

Are bumps under the skin after a bug bite a concern?

No, not usually. This is assuming that you mean a single lump at the site of the bite. Lumps under the skin are a normal reaction to the allergen introduced by the insect, although not everyone has this reaction to them. The bumps can be itchy, but not very painful. They should disappear within a few days; this can be expedited by the topical application of an over-the-counter steroid cream such as hydrocortisone. If the bumps are very large, develop a rash or are painful, then you may wish to see a doctor. Also, be wary of a more serious reaction to the bites which may manifest as a systemic allergic reaction such as rash, difficulty breathing, fever etc.
