Weird red bumps (maybe bites) on upper torso. *pics* Bonnie Beaver♥ Due April 8; 2 kids; North Pole, Alaska 18313 posts

So DH woke up with these little red bumps all over his upper torso. I don't have any. We haven't changed laundry detergents or fabric softeners.
Anyone have an idea?

they look like bug bites, because they are all clustered like that. I'd think a house spider or some other bug got in to your bed, maybe?

See that's what I thought at first. But I have literally none on me. Just on him.

I'd still say bites. maybe it just didn't make its way over to you. I wouldn't say bed bugs or anything, though. Just a stray spider or bug. Ick! hate the thought of bugs in my bed!!

Could it be a flea? DH attracts them like crazy and that is what his bites look like. They will bite him over our dogs lol

First thought was a bed bug.

His bites do resemble bed bugs

My son had something similar on his butt. I have no idea what they were.



I'm ruling out bedbugs though. We have a plastic cover over his mattress that his mattress goes into and zips up. He wears a pull-up to bed so they would have to get under his diaper. He doesn't have them anywhere else.



If you figure it out, let me know!

Oh god. That makes me sick. :x
Just read up on them and we did just stay in a hotel Saturday night for a mini vacation.
I will be washing everything when he wakes up. :x

If it is bed bugs you have to wash EVERYTHING and it's best to throw the mattress out. They can live for months in cracks and stuff
