    they dont look anything like my bites. at all.
    Are they itchy? It might be some other kind of rash.

    No, not itchy at all, but the pattern is so strange. It almost looks like some one scraped a pin over the skin.

    I also don't think those look like a bed bug bite pattern. They actually don't look much like bites at all

    It's really ineffective to try to diagnose the pest that's biting you from what the bites look like because everyone's skin responses are very different.

    If you're concerned about the possibility of bed bugs, my advice is to read the FAQ on figuring out whether you have bed bugs on the main site. There are descriptions of the most reliable techniques to help rule in or or bed bugs or other pests (or other non-pest issues) there.

    Those look the same as my first bites. Now my bites look more like flea bites. Most are random but some are still in rows. Personally, I would be suspicious enough to get a pro to rule out bed bugs. (Well, I'm really scared of spreading them by doing things on my own.)

    A couple of years ago I had a similar pattern on my arm--of 3 "bites." I went nuts. I was sure it was "breakfast--lunch--dinner." MD said it was a scratch.

    I didn't believe him. Never happened again.

    Older and wiser: It's possible that's a scratch. Something across the skin that pulled the skin so that the marks appear only where the skin was raised or folded. (That part I figured out on my own.)

    I am not telling you what it is. I'm just saying it looks like what happened to me.
