    Hello- appreciate the help.

    This is the first time I've ever found a stain like this on my sheets. This one I found on my pillow this morning. Do you think it could be bed bug related?

    Thanks

    I always swore I'd freak out if I found something like this. Now I don't want to. Am I in denial?

    Hi,

    Please look at the blood spots oin sheets primer where you wil see this looks nothing like bed bug faecal.

    Hope that helps.

    Please forgive, I'm rather paranoid at the moment. I didn't mention that I've also been getting bites every other night; this morning I woke up with 2 on my face (hence, pillow stain worry). My boyfriend says they look more like pimples and blood from the pimples- but I don't ordinarily get pimples.

    By "sheets primer", do you mean this post http://bedbugger.com/forum/topic/new-blood-spots-on-sheets-primer
    It is all I could find when I googled. And to be honest, I fail to see how my stain is that different. Is the telling difference that mine isn't dark enough? Again, I really appreciate your time. And I apologize if I sound paranoid. If you heard our backstory with bed bugs.. okay, no, i won't go there

    I agree, not bed bug related.

    Got it. Well thanks. this does sort of make me feel better.

    I see now that it's not fecal (faecal?) matter. However, with the possible bite on my cheek- I still think this could be blood from that. But it could be many things.
    thanks yall
    Best,

    D

    There are more things that aren't bed bugs than are bed bugs. An alternate explanation is far more likely for the skin irritation on your cheek.
