    As I have previously posted I recently slept in a bed that had bed bugs and was severely bitten. I immediately washed all clothes and called my exterminator to inspect and throughly spray my room and hallway leading to my room. I live in an older town house on the lake so he informed me I would most likely see dead bugs here and there after him spraying. I'm just making sure they aren't bed bugs thanks for your help!

    Thank you! My boyfriend says I'm going crazy. I keep washing everything a million times, searching everywhere thinking I carried one home. My body had such a bad reaction to the bites they are all over so the bed I slept in must have been very infested. Hopefully I got lucky!

    Hi,

    Skin reactions "all over" are much more commonly:

    • Contact dermatitis from washing additives
    • Contact dermatitis from dust mite droppings

    It's always best not to assume when it comes to bed bugs. Monitor and learn the importance of checking. Even better add bed bug aware to your dating criteria.

    Nf 30: Please compare your pictures to those of bed bugs. The antennae are very long and thread-like on yours, but wouldn't be on bed bug. Then compare bodies.
