    Again, found some questionable spots on the fitted sheet of our bed. The boyfriend claims that he had some cuts on the side of his leg from sliding while playing tennis, but I wanted to have some professionals check these.

    When I zoom in, they look kind of reddish brown, so I didn't check it with Bed Bug Blue, since I read here that "fresh" blood can also produce a response. For what it's worth, they faded to a light red when I used saliva on them, and when I washed the sheets, they completely washed out.

    Is it just blood? Or something else that I should be concerned about?

    Doesn't look bedbug related.
