    Could someone please help me identify these? I can't find any bed bugs in the wood work under my bed or in my sheets but woke up with these 4 white bites in a perfect line. Really itchy. Thank you in advance I'm so paranoid.

    Edit: That is my upper inner thigh.

    Do you have pets? I get loads of little bites when my cats get fleas and they are often in groups or a line.
    It could still be bed bugs even if you can't find any cos they can hide pretty well in your matress and stuff. Wash your bedding and possibly use some sort of bug killer (there are types for it) on your bed if it persists

    Coud also be some sort of flying bug that got in. Probably not moquito if they are little. or even a late flare up to something like an ant. It isn't unusual to have a slight reaction to any bite.

    Bites happen, and its nothing to worry about unless they get really bad or you start feeling ill too. I they are rather itcy or red (they look a little irritated to me) you could put some anticeptic cream or aloevera on them.
    If you are really concerned just pop to your pharmacist and they can take a look for you.

    I've got these marks on me too! I've got 6 of them all down my left side and they are so itchy! Unfortunately I don't know what they are either but from other people's opinion it's either a bite or heat spots. I'm going to my GP tomorrow for an unrelated issue so I'll probably bring it up when I'm there. I'll let you know what gets said!

    Sorry, but bite marks clustered together like that are often bed bugs (usually 3 bites in a row). But if you have an infestation at home you'll get more.

    Adn don't expect to be able to see them by the way because they are tiny and hide very well.

    Bed bug bites themselves need no treatment. but can be bloody itichy
