KWashington: I am so sorry that you are having problems with bite like issues. As you can see from the forums there are a lot of different things that can cause bite like skin reactions besides bed bugs. If you do have them you will definately see signs within a month or two from what I have read here from expert postings. Continue to inspect the bed area and watch for skin castings, dark almost black fecal spots and tiny white eggs. I hope that you don't have them......there is lots of information here on other pests - perhaps you can get some clues.
