    I've been very paranoid about bedbugs lately for some reason. I stayed in a hotel about three months ago that I was sure had bedbugs and now I'm sure they're in my house and have just taken a long time to get to me (only time I would've been exposed to them as far as I know). I've noticed an odd itchy spot or two on myself this week (they did not seem to be bedbug bites but they might have been a mild reaction!) and despite washing my sheets and checking my mattress thoroughly and finding nothing, I am still paranoid. In the morning I noticed this spot on my pillow. I can't for the life of me remember if it's always been there or if it's just cropped up and the pillow is pretty dirty/in need of a wash. Does this look like a fecal/blood stain a bedbug would leave? http://imgur.com/a/oZ0vG

    I have zero other evidence of bed bugs, so I may just be being super paranoid. Thanks for either confirming or easing my paranoia.

    Hi,

    100% not faecal.

    Not convinced its blood either but it is possible.

    As such nothing to indicate bed bugs.

    Hope that helps.
