In a complete Panic!(1 post)
I’m an absolute mess. I haven’t slept in weeks. I woke up one morning with five odd bites on my back. They were not in any particular order. I panicked thinking they were bed bug bites. I called my landlord who came over right away. We didn’t find any living bed bugs. We inspected the bed thoroughly and found nothing. He sprayed the whole apartment. The bed, the boxspring, the couch. Absolutely everything even the floor and carpet. He sprayed all the furniture. I also took out all my clothes from the dresser and bagged them, washed them and dried them on high heat. I wiped my headboard down with rubbing alcohol. I threw out my duvet and cover and the two pillows I have in the living room as well as the small carpet I had near my bed. My landlord put sticky catchers on all the posts of my bed and no bugs have turned up.
Since I haven’t seen a bed bug or any evidence of one can I be safe in thinking that those were in fact mosquito bites? I haven’t had any bites since.
The problem now is that I’m constantly itchy all over. I don’t know if it’s psychological or not and I’m terrified to sleep in my bed. I’m constantly checking for any signs of them two or three times a day.
Is it possible at all to know if you definitely do not have bed bugs???
I’m losing my mind with panic and paranoia and can’t sleep.
