After a night in a hostel in Central America, I noticed about 10 bug bites on my hands and arms. The bites are small, only about the size of a mosquito bite. There are little scabs in the middle of of each one, no bigger around than a pin. The bites on my left hand are four in a row, about an inch long and spaced evenly apart. There is one on the inside of my arm near my elbow as well. On my right hand, there are three bites, two on one finger and one on the finger next to it. The last bite is also on the inside of my right arm. There are no bites on my torso or legs. The bites itch like mosquito bites. However, I have never had mosquito bites with scabs in the middle. So would it be bed bugs? Or something else?
