    I keep getting red spots on various parts of my stomach, arms, mostly the right side of my back. I sometimes get one buta lot of times the are two or three spots in a row, triangle, zig zag. I only get about a group of these every other night or so. Can follucilitis mimic bed bug bites and show up like what I just described? We have found bed bugs but have not seen any in about a month.

    Bed bugs are not tool users, they don't bite in the shape of a triangle, not even isosceles, though it would be interesting.

    Does any one Know if a dermatologist can determine from a biopsy if it was a bug bite vs. a skin reaction like maybe folliculitis?

    So I got my results still inconclusive of what is going on except the fact that the lab saw bacterial infection. I will be starting a antibiotic in a few days and it looks like I am going to be taking it for 3 mo. That just seems crazy and could cause problems. I don't know though.
