Re: So is this a flea/scabies/bed bug bite?

In my opinion, I would say Bed Bugs, probably because they have been a nightmare for me for several weeks now!

Lift up your mattress and check inside the bed frame! You may be totally shocked by what you find -- especially the ones that are still alive and " kicking". Hope I am wrong for your sake!

It looks like they may be growing in groups of 3. That's a sign of bed bugs, because each bug usually bites a person 3 times.

What kind of home do you live in (house or apartment) and how long have you lived there? Have you traveled recently?

Re: So is this a flea/scabies/bed bug bite?

well i have a lot more bites right now on me. when i came home a couple hour ago i tossed out my headboard from my bed. i looked everywhere on my mattresses and box spring for any signs of bed bugs and none. i even went out bought the special wraps to wrap my mattresses and box spring so even if i did have them they wouldnt be able to get out now and come bite me. i vacuumed the carpet. and i also bought spray from home depot and i sprayed all over the carpet and in every corner. before i even walked in the house my legs felt itchy. now i want to itch them so bad.
