    Not bed bugs. Those are carpet beetles, cast skins of the larval form.
    It's been reported that the hairs can cause skin reactions that are sometimes confused with insect bites.

    Thanks so much. Thats a relief of sorts. In the paranoia I have lost a bed and my room looks like a warzone.

    What caused the paranoia were the itchy bites on my partner. They are so similar to bed bug bites.

    I know this is a bed bug forum but if any one can share any tips until PCO reaches will be really helpful. Thanks in advance
