    Help! I found these in my son's bed. I'm worried that the translucent one is an egg.

    My son just showed me three bites on his abdomen, right at the waist of his pants and two on the back of his knees. Today was cold and rainy and he was wearing long sleeves and jeans and not outside much today. I can't imagine where these came from. He said he just noticed the itching and looked down and they were there. He was sitting on our couch, fully dressed.

    I am beside myself. We just got the all clear from my PCO a week ago, and now this. I feel like there is never any peace. Please help.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, both. That translucent round thing freaked me out. But it is the wrong shape.

    Now to figure out why my son has five bites - they look like mosquito bites. But it was between 39 and 54 degrees and raining yesterday. Where did he get mosquito bites? Argh!

    I want all clear to really mean all clear... it's been almost a year and I'm just so worried all the time.

    But thank you for taking the time to reply. Can't tell you how grateful I am for your help.
