    I had bed bugs once long ago around 5 years ago. recently I've had quite a few bumps on my legs waist line and 2 on my stomach as shown. I noticed these bumps after a weekend and since been keeping a very close eye. I bought traps and some bug powder and spray. sprinkled the powder around the bed frame and sprayed the side and bottom of my mattress and box spring. after a week I havent noticed any new bumps and nothing got caught in the traps. i did notice some fecal black stains on my bedding. I have been panicking since then thinking its bed bugs but I have not found any shedded skin that bed bugs leave behind.

    so I was wondering if someone can tell me if these bites below look like bed bug bites or not or am I just being paranoid.

    also no one else seems to be bitten other then me and I live with 5 other people in a 3 bed room apartment

    since they are mostly on my legs I'm thinking they are fleas maybe

    Can’t tell you about bites .. nobody can.

    As for the “feces” you think you found - I would post a picture of that before the “bites”. Most people don’t identify feces correctly.

    It doesn’t look like it but the pictures are not good enough quality (higher resolution & close up) for me to say 100%

    hi killer queen,
    thanks for the suggestion. here are some close ups of the stains hopefully it's better

    also I was in the sauna yesterday and sweating so when I itched myself I found this attached to my hip. could these be fleas? it might be a little blurry but it was hard to focus on something soo small.

    Stains are not feces ... Sample on finger is not a flea or bedbugs.

    I guess it could be spider bites or some allergic reaction to something or maybe even stress lol
