    Just when I think I'm over the paranoia, I found a couple concerns on my bed this morning.

    The one stain looks far too large unless they had a party; the second seems more appropriate. But given the first, I wonder if I just didn't have something on my hand when I went to sleep. The yellow bit I can't account for though - I've seen similar, but I had dismissed it as dried earwax or something as it was on the pillow.

    Notably, all of these were on my pillows - nothing on my sheets.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    If you look at the example images you will see cast skins are highly conserved in appearance.

    It is also not faecal as the example will show.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for the response! I'm just not sure what you mean by highly conserved in appearance? It might be worth noting there were 2-3 other bits nearby, smaller though.

    I appreciate your patience with paranoid folks like me.

    Hi,

    If you look for the examples posted they all look the same - I.e. highly consecrated rather than variable appearance.

    Shed skins tend to stay whole for the most part and resemble a bed bug, fragmented pieces are from another source.

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. The yellow bits are definitely a mystery but it's reassuring to hear it's not shed skins.
