    Recently found this blood stain this morning which wasn't there last night. I've had someone come to check for BBs last week but says I show no signs that they're present. I usually take an antihistamine so the only time I see a bite/rash is when I forget to take it. My boyfriend who I share a bed with has one new bite almost every day, but hasn't had them in clusters for weeks. Not sure where to go from here. I see no other proof in my room. No stains on my mattress, box spring or headboard. No physical bugs or exoskeletons.

    Hi,

    Oxidizing red blood plus high lymph content. I suspect the cause to be a spot or cut that can triggered an immune response.

    Not something that confirms bed bugs.

    Hope that helps.
