Anyone been bitten by them? Spent the night with SO and woke up covered in these bumps. This was the second night, first night I woke up with just a few on my right knee and elbow. This morning the are up and down all four extremeties. They are even on the bottom of my feet and in the webbing.

But what I don't get is, I've slept in that bed many many nights. He's never woken up like this. Dd slept in it and didn't get bit.I have checked the bed and don't see evidence of them.

He recently started a landscaping job. Is there any kind of bug he coulda picked up?

I've googled bed bug bites and they look like a few of the images but not the majority of the pics I saw.

Bed bugs bite in a straight line.

Hmm. Most my patches of these are in clusters.

Do you know why the bite in lines?

Fleas might be a possibility if u don't see blood spots on the mattress.

Is he itchy at night? Marissa & I had them and she said she itched at night mainly. Did you check the hwole bed? You have to take the bed apart and search all around the whole mattress and the box spring, look for littler vlack dots, these things can hide anywhere, so really, really look.
