Ever since last Sunday, I broke out in a icthy rash on my legs and abdomen. Yesterday when my leg started to itch, I closely examined it and found this bug crawling on it, Its like the size of a dot but with the help of my phone, I was able to zoom in quite a but but still not enough to properly identify. Could you ladies help me please to figure out what this is so I can work on getting rid of it. This was the 3rd one I found but the first two times I freaked out, like I said its extremely tiny.

Do you have pets??  It might be a flea.

I looks like a louse. It's so hard to see.

That's what I was thinking. Those suckers are hard to kill.

I can't really see it but I really hope it's not a bedbug.

Bedbug or a louse? Lice usually go for your hair first but bed bugs bite you all over your body. (I always look up bed bugs before we go on vacation so I know how to check hotel beds)

It definitely was not hopping so I already ruled fleas out. Beginning to think its bed bugs UGH and besides only a few bites on my husband, I'm the only one getting bit like crazy.

Carly32 I was on the phone with bed bug companies yesterday and they were saying if it's a new infestation, it's really hard to find them. I looked over our entire bed and nothing. He said they could even be in the bed frame itself or they can hide in the walls
