What bit me?

The other day, I developed 3 itchy red marks (they look like bug bites) on my elbow. They're in a triangle formation, and everything I look up online indicates that they could be bed bugs. However, I got them while I was sitting at my desk at work, 6 hours after I'd left my house, and wearing a long-sleeved shirt. Is there anything else that would cause marks like these?

When I first got them, they were red in the center with a raised circular welt around them, and about the size of a chick pea. The welt went away after a few hours and now they are just flat red dots. I definitely think something bit me because there are pin prick marks in the middle. I'm worried that it's bed bugs, but I don't see any signs and no one else in my house has been bit, including my boyfriend who sleeps in the same bed.
