Bug bites? Help! MamaTay[Kennedi] 1 child; Greenville, Texas 4171 posts
16th Jun '13

My daughter has been getting these, and these are the best pictures I can get of them. She's been sleeping in a pack n play that was kept in the garage, and she only has them on exposed body parts (face,hands,feet) and only in the past week. They don't itch or cause a fever, they don't bother her at all. I'm just nervous. And they get smaller when I use diaper rash cream on them. Anyone have any idea what they are?IMG_0380_zps11886be6.jpgIMG_0381_zpsd5f7a735.jpg

First thing, look in the pack and play for any type of bug/insect. I wouldn't continue to put her in that pack and play.
They kinda look like maybe fleas bites, or possibly mosquito bites.

Don't know, but I'd be done using the pack n play until I figured out what it was and it was cleaned thoroughly (if it can be, depending on what it is). I'd definitely take her to the doctor and see what they say about it...

Are you absolutely sure that those are bug bites? =/ I'd have a heart attack if my baby woke up looking like that.

Bed bugs usually don't bite on the face and their bites tend to be in a straight line.
Still, I agree with PP, take her in to be seen. Poor thing!

If you seen bugs in there why is she still sleeping in it and why are you asking us? You should have captured a few of the bugs in a jar and took her straight to the dr with them

I would take her in to the dr and find out what is causing it. It could be some sort of allergic reaction. It could be some type of bug.
