I bought some imported (Chinese) bedsheets and the first night I lay on them,I was overrun by biting insects.The sheets had some red coloured blotches on them,and I know I should have washed them first,but I didnt.
I am now overrun by these bloodsucking insects,which look like sandflies.
They are very small like no-see-ums.
They need blood to survive, and the eggs are layed on my skin and in my scalp.
I have tried many things but nothing is working.
Does anyone have any experience of this?
How do I get them off me?
Any help would be appreciated.

  • I dont know the correct medical term for this, but it sounds like bed bugs. I saw something on that not too long ago. If you look up bed bugs you will probably find out how to get rid of them. I think this because of the red blotches on your sheets. These bugs are usually filled with your blood and show quite a bit of it when killed. Hope this helps.
