Could it be bed bugs??

Posted by on Nov. 12, 2009 at 6:53 AM

Two nights ago my husband woke up with 8 bites forming a cirle in the fold of his elbow. I blew it off and assumed maybe a spider had decided to feast on him for the night. Well this morning he tells me he got three more bites last night - two on his shoulder and one on his neck. I am a clean person - as is he - we havent stayed in any bed other then ours and no one has slept in mine - and I have not been bit - so wth is going on? Could it be bed bugs?? And if so how do I get rid of them?! And why am I not being bit? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

 I'm sorry. I really dont know anything  about bedbugs. I would guess it was them. I just wanted to reply and say I LOVE your screen name. that's sort of like what I used to be when I had kids---no one knew my name anymore--even now my dd's friends even call me Mom.

google it, there's pictures of bites and a bunch of info on how/where  to look for them, and treatment isn't as good as it use to be b/c of FDA regulations.

good Luck!

My husband does have bad allergic reactions - has to wear unscented deodorant and all - I did just switch the detergent too - Did yours look like a rash or bites?
