Help me to identify!

Asked May 9, 2016, 9:40 AM EDT

Hello. This little thing has bitten me many times. It's painful and I guess I have a kind of allergy because this pain lasts so long. Finally I caught one. When I've killed them before, it expells one kind of bad smell. It is around 3-4 mm. I find them always individually and mainly in the clothes I'm wearing or in bed clothes. Always indoors. Seems like an ant, but I wouldn't say it is. No wings, no mouth with pincers.
I am in Barcelona, Spain.

Thank you very much if you can give me some advices on how to prevent or exterminate this little bug.
