    Hi all, thanks in advance for the help. I had problems last month with bed bugs in my old apartment and had to move out. A friend was nice enough that, despite knowing my situation, offered her place (occupies only sometimes) for me to stay temporarily. I have been there for a week.

    Before moving to her place, I exercised the best caution that I knew - I took my clothes to a laundry mat and dried them for two hours. I sprayed my shoes and backpack with alcohol three times. I put everything in ziplock bags. Most of my clothes are still in the old property and I only have three pairs of jeans and a few shirts with me

    Yesterday while showering I noticed three bites on my back, in a line.

    They did not hurt and only itched a little. This morning they have shrunk significantly and do not feel anything now

    I checked under the mattress and found this:

    I did see something that looked a bit like a bb shell, but it got dropped somewhere that I couldn’t find afterwards. I also checked the sheets for any ink-like dogs and other debris:

    Could anyone share their thoughts on whether I might have brought the bugs over somehow? This is seriously driving me crazy and I don’t know who to turn to.

    Thanks

    I don't see anything that would make me suspect bed bugs.

    Thanks for your feedback. Do you think the bite marks, stains on bedsheet, and stuff under the mattress are not bed bugs?
