Mostly my husband and toddlers get bit; I do some; we do not see or feel the bites. It is not fleas; I do not see signs of bed bugs; what type of bug?

We don't have enough info to tell you what bug. In the meantime, avoid fragrances and harsh soaps, as these may irritate skin and add to itching. So use unscented everything for sensitive skin.
