    Hello. Few days ago killed a bedbug (or atleast I think it is) (first image of it). Cleaned and put isopropyl alcohol everywhere I could think off (was told to do just in case). Today (few days later) noticed these stains where I and my 10 month old sleep. before today no stains but my son was badly bitten
    Is that a bedbug? Are these stains that i found- bed bugs stains? Also attached images of a rash my baby has, what I think are bites.
    thank you

    Bumping this for you. Hopefully Lou and BigDummy can help...but I’ll chime in in the meantime:

    First pic isn’t really clear but it does look like a bed bug from what I can tell.

    I’m not an expert but the other pictures of stains don’t look bed bug related. (Pic #5 maybe looks a bit suspicious? But BD would be able to tell you with more certainty).

    Just be careful using alcohol, especially around your baby, as it is very flammable. I would suggest getting some Cimexa and packtite passive monitors. Hopefully the one BB you found was a hitchhiker. Just be vigilant and continue to be on the lookout for signs...

    For the record, I am NOT an expert.
    My advice/opinion comes from past experience(s) with bed bugs and what I have read on-line.

    The bug is a bed bug. Skin lesions could be bed bug bites. Stains, not sure.
