Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda.
I wouldn't be too concerned about bumps for now; they could indicate e.g. parasites, skin infections etc. Has she been itching? Feel free to send a photo for me to check.However, the cold temperature is a huge concern and could indicate she is very unwell. Has she been eating well and passing lots of poo as well as being active? If not, this is a serious emergency and she needs to be seen by a vet immediately . She may have a condition known as gut stasis, whereby the gut slows down and fills with gas and can lead to death. It can occur in those who have been stressed due to transport or rehoming.
A vet can check her over, check her temperature and give any medicine she may need e.g. fluids, pain relief and gut stimulants.
