    Please help for the past few weeks I have been getting bites it seems like it's only when I'm sitting on the couch in the living room, i live with 3 other people and we all sit there and i am the only one who has been getting bites. As soon as they appear they itch but then are gone within a few hours for the most part. Today I saw this: http://tinypic.com/r/21neghz/9 bug on me I put it on a paper towel and took the photo then i squeezed it and blood came out. A bite is now on my leg: http://tinypic.com/r/1590us/9 and almost disappearing already. Please help me I am so annoyed and confused.

    Definitely need a clearer photo. It is very out of focus, and hard to see the bug.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    The picture of the suspect insect is very small and difficult to zoom in and still keep it from breaking up. It would be best if you could get closer to it and take a picture that is in focus. It is possible that it's a first instar bed bug but a better picture would help.
