    I'm writing this to see if i can get some help....last night i noticed 2 spots/blotches on my light fixture and wiped them off, they came off with saliva and one wipe of my finger with no streaking, thought nothing more about it and went to bed...when i woke up this morning and turned my light on i noticed three new ones. Would anyone be able to tell me where they're coming from and if they're bb in origin...normally i wouldn't give it any thought but the fact that these 3 new ones showed up over night has me a little worried/curious

    NOT an expert, but what is above that ceiling? They kind of look like water stains to me.

    Ya i thought about that but the shade is just a big square and its on the outside, if it was water stains it'd be on the inside

    Hi,

    Its too pale and diffuse to be bedbug related.

    I am also going to go with either water or a small mold growth.

    Hope that helps.
