    Hello again I feel like I've been here a good amount lately. Was wondering if this looks like bed bug fecal? I have been having weird skin issues lately so I've been on high alert constantly checking my bed for bed bugs and I found this spot on the top sheet. Thank you again

    I should also mention that the bed bug blue test left a faint blue in the board which is making me freak out even more. Does it look like it could be fresh blood?

    Hi,

    No this is not bed bug related.

    Some people in certainly lights manage to convince themselves that the solvent front that occurs when you apply the sample to the paper can appear blue. The blue you are looking for is concentrated under the sample.

    Hope that helps.

    Would it be too light to be fecal?
