What are these red spots...?

Postby hurly » Tue Jun 13, 2006 4:06 pm

Can somebody please tell me what these red spots are? Is is a result of bug bites? Do I have to change the sheets or something...? I think its bed bugs, but I might be wrong.

Hmmm...I can think that it's caused by bed bugs also, because I've ever gotten it...when did you get it? and where? and (this's a little bit rude) according to you, how is the condition of your room? I mean is it messy or neat? how about the bed condition and the moisture level inside it? also, about sunlight, does it get enough sunlight?

Hi Hurly,

I am not qualified to diagnose anyone at any time, and certainly not over the internet.

However, I think, having read some other of your posts, (scar left after squeezing a zit, e.g.), and after viewing your photographs, (which could be bites, or could be from a number of other causes), that you could do worse than to read everything on the fiber disease thread.

Did you consult a doctor, as advised by Poison, ages ago?

Were the swollen lymph glands that you mentioned also experienced by you, (in another post)?

I think that you should consult a dermatologist, and possibly a parasitologist, if these red spots persist.

I think bed bugs. Or like in U.S. we have chiggers. Maybe those?

I got them when I got to Los Angeles.
We have like this bed in the living room that I sleep on. There's not much sunlight coming through the room.

Cilla:
I didn't understand your post...? Do you want me to read the fiber disease thread because I might have it...?

My swollen lymph is now gone. I had asked my doctor about it and he said it a virus infection that had caused it. But it was nothing serious. It is almost gone now :)

You may be allergic to the protein from the bugs, and it caused the bites to
end up like that. I have such a reaction to mosuito bites.
There is some evidence reactions as such may be linked to a virus.

Do your moscuito bites go away...?
Usually when I get a bite from bugs, they turn red and go away after a few days. But the ones that I have one my feet now, has been there many days.

I will have the mosquito bites for months and still itchy.
There is an interesting discussion _at_ Princton U about this.
One virus they have seen that causes reaction to bug bites is EBV
(Epstein Barr)

Bed bugs may transmitt things when they bite.
Have you caught one of the devils?
Have U seen a doc?

I will check with a friend of mine knows about bedbugs and these bites better than me.
get back to you in a few days if I am able to hunt him down to ask.

I can say that it's a bedbug but who knows that it would be others..:lol:

@Linn
EBV is also considered as Arbovirus...:lol:

Hi Hurly,

I don't know, it could well just be bug bites. I thought maybe you were unconsciously worried, because I noticed that there had been a few posts from you in the past, and putting them together, (the zit that left a scar, the swollen lymph glands, and these inflamed spots that could be bites) I felt a bit concerned for you. They look itchy and painful, but that does not mean that you have Morgellons, of course. Plenty of people get bit by fleas and bed bugs, and do not have this at all, but I think you should see a doctor if they persist. I am not a doctor or scientist, so do not know what they are. However, on the fiber disease thread, you could pick up useful information re topical treatment of bites, but nothing is as good as seeing a doctor.
