My wife and I are being bitten almost nightly. This takes

Customer Question

My wife and I are being bitten almost nightly. This takes place in two separate locations. The marks are round red up to half inch diameter with no obvious centre and extremely itchy. The offenders leave no trace. They are definitely NOT bed bugs or fleas. Some form Mite perhaps? From this description can you help identify the offender?
JA: The Dermatologist can help. To begin, when did the itchiness first appear? Have you and your wife used any medication for this?
Customer: About 3 months ago. We apply Betnovate with little effect.
JA: Thanks for that. Has she seen a dermatologist about the itchiness?
Customer: No.
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in her medical history the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: Remember this is both of us that are being bitten and our medical histories are complicated being 70 and 87 respectively.
