Let me start off by saying I KNOW these arent fleas or bed bugs!! I know what the bites look like and i know what bedbugs and fleas look like... NOT IT!! Ok... so the past 3 days... i keep getting bit in my house... mostly in my bed. I dont feel the bite.. all of the sudden im super itchy and it looks just like a mosquito bite. each time i cant find a bug!!! nothing! ill be under the covers with a sweat shirt on and ill get bit on my back while laying on my back so its safe to say it is not a mosquito... i have searched the bed, corners... nothing... no bugs.. no droppings. I havent even seen a spider! im covered in bites tho! from what i can find, it isnt scabies... the bite dont look the same. i did some research and found all these people complaining of "invisible bug bites" and that they were mites... not dust mites. no one can find a solid way to get rid of them though... everyone saying that bombing didnt help...and to just wash everything and vaccume 3 times a day for 3 weeks... and it helped slow it down... ugh anyone ever heard of such a thing happen? getting chewed up by something you cant find?!

definately could be mites. My friend had the same problem and thinks her cat was bringing them in.



She flea treated the cat and bought a product called "Goodnight Bed Bug Spray" It worked great. She just sprayed all the furniture and has had no problem for a couple months now!

Sounds like when we had scabies. I'd make an appt with the doc to rule some things out.
