YANMD but need help--is this bedbugs? Can a prompt care tell? And if so what do we do?

We are traveling and have been for 6 days. Yesterday I noticed a rash on my wife's lower legs from ankle to knee. I noticed it mid day and not earlier in the day (and I was looking at her lower legs due to terrible blisters she got from walking).
As the day went on these seemed to get worse. Her legs swelled and took on a mottled appearance. When she woke up though it was back to the red spots.

These don't itch and don't feel raised. But we are returning home today an our big fear is bedbugs. We don't want to bring them into our home.
We are thinking of going to a Prompt Care in the area to have them look but google says diagnosis is hard if we didn't see the bugs. Also I have no spots but google says they could take 9 days to show up
Advice on what to do to keep bed bugs out of our house would be appreciated!
