Ok, I am in a slight freak out mode and I would love it if one of my blog readers could help me out.
Friday I noticed five or six bug bites on Zachariah's chest/tummy. No big deal. They are just about gone. But Tuesday afternoon I discovered six new bites on the back of his shoulder. Here is the kicker. Due to the rain, we did NOT step foot outside at all on Tuesday. That made me freak out a bit. He is being bit inside, and I am pretty sure it is when he is sleeping. And wait for it... he woke up with two more bites on his back this morning.
Here is some info:
- The bites are red and just a little bit raised off the skin. They look like a typical bug bite.
- The bites are in clusters or rows. The first set on his chest was kindof spread out, but the ones on his shoulder are almost in a straight line. (This is why I do NOT think its a regular bug bite)
- The bites do not seem to bother Zachariah at all. He doesn't even know they are there.
- I only notice them after he has been sleeping
We don't have any pets, and Zachariah has had flea bites one time before (while on vacation to NC), so I have pretty much ruled those out.
My biggest fear is that bed bugs are biting him. I did a lot of research on them and they just flat out CREEP ME OUT. Out of everything I have read, our home would not be the "typical" place that would acquire bed bugs... but now I am just paranoid about it.
Does anyone know what might be the cause of Zachariah's bites? Has anyone had this happen before? I am going to be making some calls today, but I just wanted to know if anyone else has some info for me that would calm my nerves.
