    Images of skin lesions cannot be used to diagnose bed bugs.

    it's hard to say. nobody can tell you what kind of bites those are. I had similar bits like that on the back of my knee, groin and thigh about the same size and distance apart.

    yet I still cannot find a single bug or bed bug shell. I have been still looking since that day but still cant find any.

    I live in a 3 bedroom apartment with 5 other people and no new bites on me or anyone else so I'm hoping what ever it was is gone now

    It's been pointed out before. Can't really diagnose bed bugs by skin lesions because these can look like bed bug bites, but many things also can. Much better to find the insects. Use various monitoring devices.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    They do not itch.
