They look like bites to me. They are definitely tiny holes and not raised bumps or lumps. He hasn't been outside, nor has he screamed out in pain or anything. What the hell has bitten him? Tia

Bed bugs can bite in a line like that.

Agreed, bed bugs

Oh no... I'm hoping you're at least on holiday??

Defo bedbugs in a line like that!

They don't look like bedbug bites to me, the holes are too big.

Poor thing, that looks sore 😲.

Bed bugs often bite in a line. Google pictures.

I've googled bed bugs and they seem to be red bumps rather than holes like this... he slept in my bed last night and myself or oh have nothing?

They look to be in pairs - spider?

Babyiwantabump Fri 05-Apr-19 20:42:52

A Zipper maybe?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 20:43:28

Looks nothing like this to me..

Thisisthelaststraw Fri 05-Apr-19 20:44:48

Was going to say zipper too?

NigellaAwesome Fri 05-Apr-19 20:45:24

I agree with bedbugs. Are they very itchy? Bedbugs are notoriously itchy

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 20:47:06

They don't seem to be bothering him at all.. even when I touched and cleaned it. He hasn't screamed or yelped out or anything. It has happened in my living room or kitchen within the space of 3 hours.

When I had bedbugs it was red spots, nothing like that. I’d say spider or sone other biting insect.

He could have scratched himself, or you could have when changing his nappy.

ABC1234DEF Fri 05-Apr-19 20:48:51

What's he been doing in those 3 hours? Do you have any animals?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 20:49:14

Would a scratch make holes though? It's so weird.

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 20:50:09

We've been playing cars and trains and watching super wings literally that's it!

Fairyliz Fri 05-Apr-19 20:50:22

They don't look like insect bites to me, more like something has gone into his flesh. Toy? Household implement?

Ask your local pharmacist

How ruddy big are the spiders where you are? grin

It still could be bed bugs, or a flea even. The bumps are histamine reaction, they die down.

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 20:53:40

No we have no animals. Nothing around the house that would indent his skin like that either. I've been all round the skirting boards and stuff too.
Do you think pharmacy now or wait til the morning?

snowball28 Fri 05-Apr-19 20:54:35

Looks the exact same as when I got bit by a spider!

gamerchick Fri 05-Apr-19 20:54:36

He could have caught himself. I guess it's the waiting game to see if any more appear.

May I compliment the tummy... Ripe for raspberry's it is grin
