Something small is biting me every night. Each morning I wake up a bit more nibbled. There are about thirty small bites on one hand and wrist right now. This has been going on for about two weeks. The bites are itchy and slow to heal. The first ones have not healed, they have just formed little red scabs. (Sorry, for the TMI). The new ones look like little pink pin pricks. It is getting to be a visible rash and I am afraid people will think I have a nasty hygine problem.
I’ve had fleas before due to adopting animals from shelters. The cats don’t have any fleas now though and I don’t see any fleas or flea dander. This feels like fleas, but why would they ignore the cats and only bite me on the wrists? Has anybody else had bed bugs? If so, what did you do to get rid of them?
It is cold here and I frequently wear itchy wool gloves. They irritate the sores but I don’t think an allergic reaction to wool is the cause. The bites seem to be new each morning. Water makes them much worse.
Thanks for any advice on debugging.
