My husband woke up with a two puncture wound, 2mm big, that looks like fang marks?

My husband woke up with a two puncture wound, 2mm big, that looks like fang marks. We were sleeping in the basement from 8am to 2pm. I do not have any marks on me. His wound does not hurt, is not red, and does not itch. I am worried it is a bat bite, though no one in the house saw a bat. (We also have 4 cats.) We live in Michigan. Urgent care doctor said it seemed to be a spider bite but I feel 2mm is too big for a spider.

General Information: No redness. No itchiness. Two puncture holes, 2mm in length. No known bat contact, but worried it is a bat bite. Slept in the basement from 8am-2pm.

Looks like a spider bite. If you were in the basement, a spider is also more likely – a bat bite would of stung and show some signs of redness. Why would a bat bite for no reason whatsoever without feeling threatened?

You don’t think it’s too big? Aren’t spider bites itchy and red.

Spiders come in all shapes and sizes – 2 marks side by side is usually a spider bite.
