    It's been a while since I've posted.. I've been paranoid since August that we've had bed bugs but no real incriminating signs (no bug spotted, a few black smudges though)..
    Well let me start off by saying that the last week has been uncommonly warm (like 75+) and my son was outside from the time he got home yesterday from school at 2pm until it got dark around 7pm. Gave him a bath and didn't notice anything suspicious.. Went to bed and woke up this morning with a red spot with a hard white welt on his inner thigh that has went away somewhat as the day has went on... This is the first I've seen like this on him and I'm wondering if it is a mosquito bite or if I should go into full on panic mode?!

    Your son probably had things like this happen many times before, but now you're worried about bed bugs, that's your first thought.

    It could be any number of causes but if you had bed bugs since August, there would be visible evidence a professional inspector could find in your home.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
