Bites

09/03/2008

Question:

My partner and I both have itchy red bites (looks like bites or a possible rash) this has started three weeks ago and has been spreading rapidly for the last week. What could this be a cause of? Simply bug bites of some kind? Or something more?

Answer:

Since both of you have the same symptoms, I would strongly suspect bed bugs or some other type of household beetle.
