    Had bed bugs in Oct-Dec.
    Had a PCO & canine smell in January - all clear.
    Two weeks ago had another (NESCDA-certified) guy come in and smell - all clear.

    But now I've got this weird mark on my hand that won't go away. It's hard to tell but it's red from like a few supppper tiny pin pricks.

    And then three little marks showed up on my ankle:


    I'm super allergic to the bugs. I get red, splotchy bites. No bumps. not itchy.

    Are you sure you never had bites in that area before?
    Old bites can reoccur.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Once we get bed bugs, we obsess over every little mark on our body that we wouldn’t have batted an eye at had we never been exposed to bed bugs.. If you said you usually get red splotchy bites, I wouldn’t think the marks you have now are bed bug related. Hands are prone to nicks and cuts on the best of days, and the marks on your ankle could just be ingrown hair(s) or something. Try not to worry.

    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.
