    Over the past week, I’ve found welts on my legs, and they itch terribly. I just found three new ones this morning on the back of my upper thigh, as pictured!

    The concerning thing is, I am a social worker who recently had a client with bedbugs, and I’m worried I brought them home. However, I bought sticky traps and haven’t found anything, nor can I find anything on my mattress (a foam mattress). My boyfriend also hasn’t had any bites. Thoughts?

    Update on the appearance a day later. Still no sign of bedbugs in traps.

    Everyone says you can't identify based on a bite, but they look very much like the BB bites I have seen on all the websites (the cluster of 3, the size and color, the puncture in the middle). Absolutely not an expert, though. I am going through a similar situation...bites that seem to fit the M.O., but can't find the bugs. Please update if any of your traps prove successful.
