    I need help IDing what appears to be an insect skin or something weird I found in my bed the same morning I woke up to a mysterious bite. [Pics below]

    Over the course of the past few weeks I have gotten a few mysterious bites, but I have climbup traps set up so that in theory I should see a bug if it tries to get in to my bed. I first got a small itchy bite on my chest, but it quiclly faded and around a week later I got what appeared to be another single bite on my rear. Now a few days later I have a single itchy bite on the back of one of my legs. Always seems to be a lone spot, no breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    After all this, still no bugs or evidence in the climbup traps (maybe they need to be cleaned and they are able to climb up and down no issue) posting a few more pics below for perspective. I don't want to call a pro if there is no evidence, but I also don't want to wait too late and want to catch it early. Last pic isn't as clear but is for size reference.

    100% not bed bug, most probably skin/scab.

    Hope that helps.
