    Hi all, I moved out of a place with bed bugs about 3 weeks ago though with very occasional trips back to the original spot (handled carefull). Last night I noticed a bite - like mark on my arm. It itched a little but not very much, and completely went away by the morning. Today I noticed two of similar shape and nature, one on my arm and the other on shoulder. I checked under the sheets and did notice something yellow and shaped a bit like a shell, but when I applied pressure to it it expanded and looked like there was dark hair inside (same color as mine). At the risk of sounding completely stupid could someone give me some tips on whether this could be a shell and bites? Thanks in advance for the help
