    I have been seeing these dot size mite or bugs at first I thought they where nympth bed bugs after looking around my room I cant see to find any adult size nor faces matter or bite marks as yet. It started when I found one crawling across my laptop and phone screen and now I keep finding the odd 1 or 2 crawling on my arm and also one crawling up the shower curtain they are all the same size the ones i am seeing and when I am in bed too. I am at my wits end with it. Could someone please help me determine what this things are please. Thanks

    These photos are the best I could take as they are really small and just about seen on a white background, one is next to a UK Penny which is about the same size as US cent.

    Too bad you couldn't get closer to get a more magnified original image of the creature. Could be a mite, not a bed bug nymph.

    Mites could be from outdoors, though it could be something else. It's difficult to discern what the front end looks like and also what the legs look like. I'd feel better having a better picture posted. The background might be better changed to something like graph paper or lined paper so the focus would have something distinctive to focus on.
