Default What kind of insect bites do I have??!!! BEDBUGS??

Im hoping its just bad mosquito bites. It could be fleas(we have 2 cats) or could it be bedbugs? I just got done reading about them and I REALLY hope i dont have bed bug infestation.

Ive got about 20 bites like this over my back, arms, and legs..ughhh

Ughhhhh Fordy!!! Too big to be flea bites and a couple of them look like they COULD be spider bites but there are a few more that I think are too large to be as a result of a spider's itty bitty choppers. To be quite honest, they look like hives to me. To play it safe, I think I'd see a doctor or go to one of those urgent care centers.

Let us know how everything turns out, OK?

Also, where do you live Fordy? if it ain't in the south, chances are, it isn't chiggers.

He's probably dripping honey all over his nether parts to find some insect love.

Or the methadone isn't working and he needs the hard stuff.


Who brings their bug bite owies here?

Fo-dee, Do you live in a cubicle? I get 50 bites a day out in the woods and it never bothers me - you city slickers must be getting weak.

True.

It must be AIDS.

Or if the buboes turn black, it could be the plague.
