To ask what the hell you think this is?

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

Looks like the bite I got from the massive type of house spider you get in the UK. Harmless but surprisingly big!

@gamerchick funnily enough my dd4 was blowing raspberries on him after I'd took that pic!

How ruddy big are the spiders where you are? grin

This big! They grow up to 14cm.

I think I've gone on a complete paranoid one as I am shit scared of spiders. He's fast asleep in his cot now, have been up to check his tummy and it still looks the same. No new redness.

Perhaps looks a bit like a few rounds of this? (spider bite)

Poor little guy, glad he doesn't seem to be feeling it!

^^Sorry, cross post! flowers and a strong wine to deal with the fear! (I have it too)

Was he running the cars or trains over his stomach? Looks like he could have caught himself on a sharp edge/wheel maybe?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 21:12:56

I ran the cars and trains we were playing with over my arm and non left any kind of mark. They are all wooden ones. I've had all cushions and pillows out to check for sharp things too. My dd hasn't had any of her own toys out either as she was playing cars with us.

Has he been playing on the floor? Anything sharp stuck in the carpet?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 21:17:14

I've literally been round all skirting and sofas, every inch of carpet and nothing. Not wearing a belt or any kind of jewellery today either. Am wearing leggings and a top so nothing sharp on my clothes

When I thought we had bed bugs I was told they don’t have red centres, you can’t see puncture marks with them. Bed bugs do typically bite in a line but I don’t think they look like bed bug bites. Poor lo!

Carpet grippers?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 21:26:23

@Triangled that was my oh's first thought but they are totally covered up in our living room he's been round and checked and our kitchen is tiled.

@polarpig

Where do you live????? shock shock

polarpig Fri 05-Apr-19 21:33:09

England! It's the cardinal spider - the countries largest spider.

They look similar to a spider bite youngest dd received. Luckily for her just the one bite. It swelled slightly then became itchy. We treated it with antihistamine liquid & antihistamine cream & drew around the swelling to monitor how far it spread.

They are very regularly spaced. Tynes of a fork or comb?

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 21:53:49

Thanks everyone for the help. Really appreciated! Will update how he is tomorrow!
Am currently having a large glass scanning my living room for toddler eating spiders only half joking

golddustwomen Fri 05-Apr-19 21:54:59

Mine and dds brushes are upstairs in the bathroom and he hadn't been up there, he can't reach them anyway.

DogHairEverywhere Sat 06-Apr-19 19:22:50

Hi, OP, how is he now, did the marks go down? Are you any wiser as to what it was?

Friedspamfritters Sat 06-Apr-19 19:27:20

Looks a bit like it may be a cut rather than bites? Or perhaps a spider? Don't look like bed bugs to me, especially if they're not itchy.
