I've been bitten by an unknown bug throughout the week. What are these bites from? (pics inside)!
Timeline of the week:
Monday - went to laundromat, washed about 5 loads of laundry on permanent press setting. Did not change the sheets on my bed so they are not fresh sheets from the laundromat. However, I've been wearing freshly laundered clothes throughout the week. These clothes were kept in a basket in my car because I'm lazy.
Tuesday - two small bug bites on my upper arm, super itchy. Noticed when I was at work wearing freshly washed sweatshirt.
Wednesday- two small bug bites on wrist of my other arm. Also at work, another clean sweatshirt.
Thursday - three big bug bite on forearm, another clean sweatshirt at work.
This morning I woke up with a cluster of big bug bites on my foot. Remember these are not sheets that I had washed at the laundromat.
warning: bitten foot
If I had to describe the bites I would say "very itchy, not painful like blackfly but itchier than mosquito."
I also have an indoor only cat. I have inspected her for fleas and she doesn't seem to have any, also she hasn't been itching.
I of course just changed my sheets and inspected my mattress and bedding. I didn't see any bedbugs.
Also I am in maine.
1. Is it possible to pick up bugs at a laundromat? I did fold on their table, it was plastic.
2. Is it possible to track in fleas on dirt in my shoes who may have gotten onto my cat? And if they are biting me this much shouldn't I have noticed them on her?
Tldr- bug bites. Maybe from unwashed sheets, possibly from freshly washed clothes. Cat. Insight?
