    I am feeling good that this is not BB. Does this look like a carpet beetle larvae? I see hairs but, no legs so that was my guess. Sorry about the other bits of debris. I was cleaning and saw that little hairy guy at the base of a mop board when I did one of my fairly routine card scrapes under the mop boards...

    Hi,

    It’s a beetle larva.

    If you search for posts of carpet beetle you can see how they can cause skin reactions in some people.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much. I have been doing some reading and some of the reaction stories about these may be a better explanation for me but, I am not going to get over confident too soon. Not with knowing what people close to me went through because they got over confident/under estimated what they were dealing with.
