You guys have got to help me out on this one. I've been getting these insect bites since around Christmas time this December. They're incredibly itchy and puffy, but not painful. I get a few of them every 2-3 days, only when I'm asleep, and almost always on parts of my body that are not under the covers while I sleep (hands, arms, shoulders, sometimes legs, once on my FACE). The bites typically stop being very swollen and itchy after 2 days, and have mostly vanished by 5.
As I said, this has been going on for under 5 months. The people who live on the same floor in the house have not once gotten the same bites, so it's definitely not an infestation, but I have NO clue what this could be. I have not once spotted an insect that could be the culprit. I have once found a few carpet beetle larvae after inspecting my room very thoroughly, it was less than 5 and they were all carcasses. Due to the consistency of these bites, however, I doubt they could be the culprits.
There is a window in my room that is well sealed, I do not believe that there are any obvious places that standing water may be around the house (please inform me if you think that I'm mistaken). I haven't gone outside in at least 3 weeks due to the quarantine and have still been getting these consistently.
I'm really curious to see what you guys think about this one. Hopefully one of you people can save my sanity.
Pictures of the bites are attached.
You need to see a doctor. Preferably a dermatologist. They're less expensive than an allergist & they can decide if you need an allergist. You can make direct appointments with them without a referral. I'm not a doc but it looks like an allergy worth taking seriously. You don't want to wait until your throat closes up.
Have you seen any spiders? Fleas? Bed bugs have a Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner pattern of bites. I would buy a roach motel type of glue trap and see what gets trapped. But, don't waste time. If you're allergic, your reaction could be swelling & itching. But, this is a DIY chatroom & you need a Doctor not a handyman or Contractor.
Where do you live?
