I've got these itchy red spots on me, mostly legs and lower stomach/back areas.<br><br>
They (maintenence) turned the heat off in all off the apt's in my complex earlier this month and last week it was still really cold, especially at night. So I took out an old sleeping bag (mummy sack) that I bought in 2001 in Nepal. It is super warm 90% down and 10% feathers. I haven't used it since my trip there, until now. I noticed the itchy spots around the same time, so I think it might be b/c off the sleeping bag. I took the bag off my bed last night and just slept with our regular blanket, but still woke up in the middle ofthe night, itching my stomach. I had two new little bites. Dh said maybe the "critters'" jumped into our bed from the sleeping bag.<br><br>
Now I'm totally creeped out that there are bugs everywhere <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ! I'm not a bug person and the thought of things crawling on me and enjoying dinner grosses me out.<br><br>
Is it bed bugs? If so, how do I get them off my mattress? I've thrown all the blankets in the wash, but I don't have a dryer. Are they still on me, therefore on all my clothes? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help">
