He bit me good this morning, it's weird he has a spot on his back that he doesn't like petted. Plumps is the same way so I'll mention it to his vet. Here are some pics.

He's lovely. He has a rather determined look in his eye. I'm guessing this is a pig who knows exactly what he wants.

He's quite handsome. He does have a glint in his eye like he is up to something.

So we got to looking at him tonight when we stopped back in to PetsMart to pick up his eye meds from the manager and he has a U shaped bald spot on his back, it's in a spot he can reach and he doesn't like it being touched. My guess mites? How would I go about getting Invermec so I can treat him. The manager is curious too so they can check their animals just to be on the safe side.

Yes, mites are a good bet.

SWEET:) /sarcasm...lol I'm calling his vet today to get everybody some since 625 was out while he was just to be on the safe site.

Randomly do lice/mites bite people? I've got bites on my legs that just randomly appeared the first night we stayed at our friends.

That sounds like fleas, or bed bugs? Does your friend have pets?

A really old cat and that's what we were thinking but we can't find any signs of either. I posted a pic of my leg on FB.

Flea bites in my opinion. Could be bed bugs but I have never seen them before.
I LOVE the new boy!!!! Congratulations!

It looks to me like an allergic reaction to flea bites or mosquito bites, not bed bugs.

iPig's eye looks a lot like my Russet's right eye. He has a blocked tear duct. I did also have to treat an infection that set in with ointment and some oral antibiotics, but it continues to be somewhat oozy, especially with that same kind of trail underneath, plus some crust around the edges of the lids and at the front corner, particularly in the mornings. When Russet grooms himself, the grooming fluid builds up in his eye because it doesn't quite drain properly, so it's noticeable. It's only the one eye, so it's not some kind of systemic reaction to something. With the infection gone, his eye itself otherwise looks normal, like iPig's.

To keep Russet's eye from getting so gummy and being uncomfortable, I gently wipe it clean every morning and put Thera-Tears in at least twice a day. It has helped him a lot. Hope this helps iPig out a little!

Considering the location, size, and appearance of the bites on the person's leg, there, plus the itchiness and recent exposure to a cat, I'd vote that they're likely to be flea bites.

No fun but at least we have the advantage for everyone.

The tear stuff, where would I find that?
