Larva of Dermestidae Beetle

5644   hi there we have found a bug on our wall and just a day or two before we have found this bug we have been getting some sorts of hives on our skin like mosquitoes  they itch once in a while. We saw a doctor and he didnt know what it was than today we found a bug which had this hairy type thing in th eback we took a picture hopefully you can help us find out what it is.

This is a larva of a beetle in the family Dermestidae (carpet/hide/skin/larder beetles and allies); likely in the genus Anthrenus.  Some people have reported skin irritation from exposure to the hairs on the bodies of these insects, but that appears to require long-term exposure to a heavy infestation. Nevertheless, you might consider an appointment with a dermatologist/allergist. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
