    Can someone please help me here, I've been dealing with these itchy spots for quite a while but only recently noticed them on my arms and so visible. They are extremely itchy and they are all over my arms although only a few are noticeable and the rest I can see with s flashlight. I've searched my bed twice now and found nothing only one brown make on my duvet but the mattress seems to be clean.
    Any help would be great thankyou!

    Have you turned you box spring over and checked every inch? Head board front and back? curtains? look every inch of the bed over.....also traps are a great way to see if you have them. Look at the top of the page for tools.......

    I don't have a head board, but I've checked under neath the bed and also under mattress and box springs and still nothing other than that brown smear but thankyou for the reply.

    Just to add to that, the photos of skin reactions don't help-- no one can ID bed bugs from a skin reaction.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Thankyou and understood, the reason I was worried is because the bites were so clustered and together in groups of two or three

    There's a myth that bed bugs bite in groups of three, but it's just that. There's no typical bed bug bite and you really can't tell based on the pattern. See our FAQ on bed bug bites.
