    Weirdly just found this on my desk, dead.

    Tried to take photos on the old iPhone but do not have anything better to hand or a magnifier.

    I do get red marks and things that do look like they could be bites sometimes, however I suffer from some dermo issues and folliculitis.

    Panicking a little, as most people do here when they fear they could have them.

    Then some less in focus images, but shows the shape a little -

    Any expert help truly appreciated, thanks.

    Not a bed bug. Search for images of bed bug images and you’ll see the differences.

    Hey there,

    Thank you for the reply, I appreciate it.

    Are you 100%? As it looks like it could be one to me....

    Are there any big experts on here that could give an opinion too? I would really appreciate it

    Here are some more daylight photos.

    Thanks so much

    And edited a bit -

    Also to correct the above new post... I meant *bug experts.

    Lastly, I would say it is about 2 or 3mm in size.

    Not a bed bug. Yes, it's a true bug (order Hemiptera) but not family Cimicidae (bed bugs).

    Thank you so much!

    So you are pretty certain it is not a bed bug, Lou?

    Again, thank you so much.
