    Hello

    I just woke up and noticed these spots on my lower hip. They don't look like what I found online but they are by 3's. I had scratches around the same area before so maybe I just scratched myself in my sleep. It's under my short when I sleep so it's covered.

    I checked my bed and all around, no sign.

    Thank you

    Can't really tell from skin lesions if these are bed bug bites.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Do you mean it's hard to guess from skin lesions in general or because my photo isn't good enough ?

    Thank you

    Bites and lesions on skin don’t tell you anything. You can not identify bedbugs this way. I suggest looking at the FAQs of this site. See some of the pinned posts on the forum.

    That's a good answer. Not really based on your pictures or the quality of pictures.
