Are these larvae/discarded skins of larvae of parasitic insects?

I keep finding tiny bits and pieces like the ones in the photograph. I usually find them on my sheet in the morning, under the pillow or duvet. They feel like grains of sand. I have brushed this collection of them together to take the photograph.

I am very worried that they might be remains of larvae of insects such as bedbugs, or worse. Can somebody please help me to identify them? I recently had an attack of head-lice, but having dealt with them, I thought the problem would be over.

I am sorry about the lack of detail in the photos. It's the best my camera can do.

The height of the photos is about1.25cm.  DSCF4900 (2).jpg

  • Well, you should be really worried. I have this kind of stuff in my bed as well (and everybody has), but I have at least five times as much (disregarding the bread-crumbs)! I think you might be overhygienic which actually might be harmful to your health.
