Bed Bug ID needed please(6 posts)
Any help confirming this as a bed bug would be more appreciated than I can ever explain. This bug was discovered on the bed towards the foot on Thursday 9/ 8/11. I have repeatedly checked for smears and black specs for the last week near the seams of the bed, on pillows, and the sheets but have not found much of anything and definetly nothing conclusive. I also tried to look into crevices near the bed but I can't see anything do to lack of light and magnification. I've also tried looking at night and have stayed up multiple nights as a result of anxiety. I recently moved into an apartment and all I can find is crevices where they may be hiding. As for bites none were evident for over a week. Now I've started noticing many red dots under my skin on my chest and arms usually like pin pricks which has furthered my fears. I know they can be hard to spot and may not be living on my bed which could explain why I can't find more evidence. For some reason I feel like I need to find more evidence or a hiding spot before I can try to figure out what to do next as I'm clueless. I took many pictures of what is left of a bug or possible castskin, part of the top broke off when I picked it up so this is all that is left of the bug. I took some from both sides. Hopefully, one of the pictures will allow someone to identify the bug and perhaps provide some advice as to what to do next. Thank you again for any help or information that can be provided.
100% not bedbug.

Thanks I'm hoping you are correct not that I have any reason to doubt you but I'm still paranoid. Any idea what it could be so I can try and quell my paranoia.
Well if you want a second opinion it isn't a BB and I would guess a silverfish remnant.
Thanks I really appreciate it. As one can guess I had convinced myselfit was a bed bug and driving myself and my bf crazy.
I've had difficulty getting the images to show up-- maybe the connection. Anyway, one I saw looked like a silverfish.
