    I'm from the Netherlands and i've got a question about the bedbugs. My son has got rash on his skin, only at his chest and belly. Is this a bed bug skin?

    I would not immediately suspect bedbugs because of the location of the bites. Bed bugs tend to bite skin that is exposed, so unless baby was sleeping without a shirt, bed bugs are not the primary suspect. Look thru the beds for any signs because bites are NOT proof of bed bugs being present. You should look for live or dead bugs, fecal stains (look through the forum for pictures of what bed bug feces look like on wood or bedding), cast skin, eggs. If you see any one of these, post a clear picture here to confirm or call a good pest control company and have them look at the sample. Poor baby looks like he needs some calamine lotion too.
