Expert ID needed for blood spot(9 posts)
If an expert could take a look at this blood spot. Was on my husbands pillow. Not sure if from beard or squished bug. We have no other signs and some bumps that could be bites or could be something else. Thanks
Two different spots, two different pillows
Fecal stains aren't blood. Blood stains don't confirm bed bugs because they can have other causes.I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
These are two blood spots
He usually edges his beard and so i maan Im not sure if he nicked himself or had a bump that popped and caused the top spot. The other spot was on my pillow where my face usually is. I do have a small bump on my jawline, not sure if its a bb bite
I'm currently suffering from bites of unknown origin. My dermatologist suspects bed bugs but I have not been able to find any physical evidence save for the bloodstain in this image. But I don't even know if this is a bug's blood in the first place, or my own blood. Can someone lend their aid here?

There's no way to know if blood stains are from bed bug bites or other causes.
What you need to confirm bed bugs are:
The easiest evidence to find is usually fecal stains.
If you've looked closely and can't see any fecal stains, that's a good sign. Bed bug monitors may help you find visual evidence and a professional inspection may be a good idea.
