Bed Bug Bites? Photo ID [a: no one can visually ID bites](2 posts)
After having an encounter at work with someone who has bed bugs I began to notice several small itchy bumps showing up on my hand/arm area. It seems like I notice one more each day. Recently I have discovered several on my left hand. There are 3 bumps that are in a curved line and very itchy. I also have recently begun feeling like there are things crawling on me, that I go to swipe off and don't find anything there.
Please tell me if you believe these are bites from a bed bug.
Sounds like head bugs and not bed bugs. It happens once we start thinking about bed bugs. Can't shake them lose.
As pros we are not supposed to ID bites because everyone reacts differently. Estimated 30% don't react at all. If I was to judge the bites from all the bites I have seen in the past and compare? No, they don't look "typical" "classic" bed buggy to me.
If anything continues or becomes a pattern ( and it will if you don't stop thinking about bed bugs) then maybe its time to invest in a professional inspection.
