    I have been noticing throughout the day that I have small red bumps appear here and there, sometimes they itch and sometimes they don't. I have very sensitive skin but I'm not sure if I'm getting bit by something or it's just my skin being sensitive. A former employer I worked for a few years ago had a bed bug infestation, after finding out I quit my job because I didn't feel they were properly taking care of the situation and was afraid I'd bring them home. I've felt a little on edge about bugs ever since.

    As I was vacuuming my couch today, I found this under one of the couch cushions, Is this a bed bug egg? It is hard and what looks like has texture to it. I also found something very similar on a glass cup that was in the cupboard the other day but it was sticky. It's smaller than a grain of rice but bigger than the "I" in liberty on a penny.

    I have tore my house apart and have found nothing else, no bugs, fecal matter, cast skins, etc.
