Question: I have several triangle bites on my body: hand, arm and leg. I checked my bed and it looks clean, there does not seem to be any signs of bed bug blood trails. Are the bites from spiders?

Brief Answer:
Seems to be mosquito bites

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have checked the details and have checked the attached images. It seems to be due to mostiquito bites (although it could be some other insect as well). It does not look concerning. It does not look like a spider bite or a bug bite.

In case it itches, you may apply calamine lotion or may take cetirizine once daily. I hope it would be ok soon.

Feel free to write back.
