    For the last just over a week I've been getting sporadic itchy red bites, and somehow remained blissfully naive and ignorant, up until last night when it all clicked. Spent all day today in a panic doing a massive cleaning frenzy.

    I've stripped the bed, taken the mattress off, and have searched every possible nook and cranny of the bed, sheets and bedframe/the floor around it and found nothing. No live bugs, no casings, no black fecal spots or blood stains anywhere. Although on the floor at the foot on the bed, I found a couple of these little things. Not sure whether they're just dead or they're casings of something. But basically... I'm freaking out.

    Please help! (or just put me out of my misery lol)
