so it seems that most people are suffering from little bites that look like mosquito bites. mine is a similar problem but the bites that i have are large. i have 2 really large ones on my calf (that after 2 days has spread into one big red splotch), one large on on the top of my left foot and a smaller one on the instep of my right foot. i have no evidence of spider, chigger, bed bug, or any other insect. when we moved into the apartment we had small roaches but they are long since gone. we have cats but they don't have fleas or any other insect infestation. my roommate hasn't gotten bitten so it's basically just contained to my bed.

i've changed the sheets and washed them. i've looked for bed bugs several times and have found nothing. i'm going crazy and i don't know what to do! can dust mite bites be really large?
