Thank you for your reply. It's definitely not bedbugs. I'm pretty savvy with bedbugs and this is not it. Bed bug bites present very differently.
Well, they just say that there's something being reintroduced into the environment. I know what that "something" is and he's black and fluffy with a pink tongue! It's because I'm bringing them in at night.
I don't think the solution is to leave them out at night. I need to find out what is on them and have it properly treated. There's no point on us continually poisoning ourselves with creams when the problem is still in the environment.
