    Hello,

    I found bites on both my legs earlier this week, but I am not trying to jump to conclusions since I had been outside in a dress for most of the day when I got bitten. The weather was a bit warm and humid. This morning, I also noticed some bumps on face but they're not itchy or as big as the bites on my legs. In any case, I've done some sleuthing and found a tiny specimen on my lampshade as well as skins under my box spring. In addition, I noticed some darks spots on my night stand. Please see the photos below and let me know if anyone can ID given the photos below.

    Booklouse, carpet beetle (maybe Anthrenus) shed skin, not necessarily fecal stains.
