    I spent the night on a friend's couch, and woke up in the middle of the night around 5am, with two clear welts on each of my arms (looked like mosquito bites, but it's November) that were itching furiously. I scratched furiously for a while, and went back to bed. Within half a day, the welts came down and became red spots. Did I contract bed bugs that I might have brought home? Two reassuring signs that they might not be bed bugs are that the bites were not in clusters, and I felt the itching immediately (no lag time). But it did happen in the middle of the night, and these bites were very itchy. Please advise?
