    Do these blood stains look like they could be from a crushed bug or fecal? I also have been having some acne problems lately so it could be from that but wanted an expert opinion.

    Blood stains can't prove the presence of bed bugs. There's no way of knowing they don't have another cause, unless perhaps you find a dead bed bug in the blood stain...

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I second what NoBugs said. And keeping in mind I'm not a professional, those stains do not look anything like bb fecal from what I've seen here and from a bed bug primer posted here several years ago by one of our pros, KillerQueen.

    On a personal note, my bed bug "journey" started with similar stains on my pillow. I googled "blood stains on pillows" and came up with "bed bugs". Long story short, turns out I never had bed bugs.
