    Your skin lesion wouldn't be from the book lice.

    Hi,

    Skin lesion could be in response to the environmental conditions (damp) that has allowed a population increase in the pscocids. It does happen and has been reported by those who have been previously exposed to other insects including bed bugs.

    Hope that helps, there is more about booklice here:

    Take care.
