    Thanks for having me join this site.
    I'm not even sure how long my problem has been going on for but its too long.
    About 4 years ago I bought a second hand bed and moved into an apartment.
    Long story short, I started waking up with bites.
    Despite looking everywhere, I never found a bug.
    But I got a pco in with a dog.
    He didn't find anything, but sprayed our house etc, twice.
    There was no improvement.
    My partner has never seen a bug either so he thinks a) I'm nuts or b) it's something else.
    In 4 years I have only ever seen 2 nymphs and 2 casings.
    I'm going crazy, going gray.
    I used climb up interceptors, and diatomaceous earth.
    I never once got a bug in the climb up interceptor.
    What to do?

    It's something else. If this had been going on for four years there would be so much evidence and so many bugs there would be no question. You should look on this site for skin conditions that are similar to bites.

    Either you had it at first and cleared it up and got sensitized to the chemicals and DE, or you just developed a skin condition, but there's no way that it's been going on this long with no evidence. And on the "nymphs" and "casings", unless you put good pictures on here and had them identified, I wouldn't trust that that is what they were, people misidentify similar looking bugs all the time.

    Good luck, it sounds like you need a good dermatologist.
