I recently have been getting bit in my bedroom. I was thinking a mosquito had been biting me all this time because we live by a lake and there are always mosquitoes. I have two red bites on my lower spine, one on the side of my stomach and two on the back of my knee. They are really red. Also on the side of my thigh I had a couple of red ones in almost a row a couple of weeks ago. I checked my mattress and I did not see anything. I had a cover on it and I pulled the cover to check and nothing. So I'm not sure if it's bed bugs or just a mosquito. Either way I'm allergic to insect bites and the itching is driving me crazy. But I did see one bug which did look like a bed bug and I believe it came from a bag I brought home from a friend's home. I killed it right away. Since then I have not seen any or gotten bitten again..
