Have had three occurrences in the last month or two, a small, un-colored hard welt that suddenly occurs with a strong enough burn to it to awaken me.
Each time was a single welt, which was like an ant bite with an itching burn, and which did not cause discomfort for more than a minute or two after waking.
Always on one inner thigh or the other, and I always followed up by going into the bathroom, closing the door and stripping off a couple of layers of clothing to search thoroughly for the culprit.
Any but a micro-sized bug would have been found, since my layers of long underwear and pj's overlapped and would have trapped the critter.
So what kind of bug bites only once and then disappears? Never had this happen before, but a friend told me she had the same thing the other day and she's not been in my bed. Same location, same symptoms and also while sleeping.
I did some web searching and rule out bed bugs, which typically leave a trtail of 2-4 bites. I don't have pets and rule out fleas since those leave red dots and the itch lasts much longer.
Any ideas on what causes this are most welcome!
I literally lost sleep over this last night when I had to get up to blast out my clothing with a hair drier as the burning welt subsided.
