    Sothis has been happening since last month, first my daughter had two bites..one on her forehead and another on her cheek. My son then started showing them last week. He has a couple now...and she has 3 on one cheek. They sleep on separate beds and rooms are pretty far away from each other. I haven’t seen any signs of bed bugs yet....
    Both their bites are deep red, almost purplish and about dime sized I also saw how it transformed from a small bite to these large reactions in a matter of hours. 3 adults live in the house with no bites. Ugh why the face?! They do sleep face down. I am soo anxious! I looked everywhere for signs but have not seen one. Could this really be bed bugs and what can I do to find these things?!?!?!

    You should read through the FAQs here. Know what you are looking for. Search your children's beds. Are you in a house or apartment?
    Look at some of my pictures to familiarize yourself with bed bugs. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lou_bugs_pix/

    I live in a house, a single family house —moved in about 4 and a half months ago. Don’t really have visitors, and stayed at a hotel in November 9. Haven’t seen bites til January 12. Thank you for your response.
