How should we handle carpet beetle dermatitis?

About a month ago, my partner began finding (what look like) insect bites scattered all over her body. They itch intensely but intermittently. We checked for bedbugs and found no evidence, but keep finding carpet beetles in our bedroom. My partner continues to find new bites, and it seems like she's getting them at night. Have you had any experience with "carpet beetle dermatitis?" Any telltale signs to help differentiate this from bedbug bites, ezcema, fleas, etc? Most importantly, what did you do to get rid of them?

Perioral dermatitis questions

I'm newly diagnosed with perioral dermatitis. If you have had this, then I have some questions for you. 1) How did you treat it? 2) Did it go away and stay away, or has it been a recurring problem? 3) Have you found dietary issues to be significant in causing it/helping to clear it up?

Can You Please Help Me Solve a Mean and Nasty Mystery Skin Condition?

Skinfilter: Help! Help! Help! About 10 years ago, I started suffering from extreme dryness and peeling on my face, which got so bad that my skin would feel like it was burning. I'm female, and I was in my early 30s at the time. When I went to the dermatologist, he diagnosed sebborheic dermatitis based on my (long-standing) hypothyroid condition and peeling in my eyebrows. He treated it with Elidil, and told me to go off it when the sebborheic dermatitis remitted. But it never did. Over time, I’ve come to think the diagnosis was wrong, but I’ve yet to hear a better theory. Maybe you have one? [more inside]

"Mr Burns, you have every disease there is!" "So I can't get worse, I'm invincible!"

Can you help narrow down what sort(s) of doctor(s) to see and what to investigate, given these symptoms? All symptoms have cropped up within the last two years. Before that, I felt healthy most of the time. Primary care doc has been little help, and most of the specialists seem to focus only on the symptoms within their own areas of expertise. [more inside]
