Bed Bug Bites – How to Treat them

Bed Bug Bites Often Get Misdiagnosed For Flea, Mite/Lice, or Mosquito Bites.

With a lot of similarities, bed bug bites often get confused with flea bites. Flea bites are normally from the knee down. Scattered bites which are mostly around the sock line. Bug bites are in rows of three bites and are normally located where the body (skin) meets the sheets.

Signs of Bed Bugs

Not many customers say they can feel the bed bugs crawling on them. bugs have adapted to feed on humans. They stay dormant in the bedding until you fall into a deep sleep. They seek the body's excretion of carbon dioxide when we are in a deep sleep. Then they follow the heat source until they find you, staying on the bed linen as to not touch you. From there they get close enough to inject two tubes into the skin. The first one injects a numbing agent (anesthetic) to the bite area while the second painlessly extract the blood. Within minutes a Bed Bug can reach its maximum bloody intake all without the person knowing. Tripling its body weight in a single feed.

Depending on the person it may take days for the itchy bites to show. So tracking down where the bites occurred can be tricky, especially when traveling. Symptoms of their bites vary as well from red itchy lumps to full-on hive-like welts in a bed bug rash. It all depends on how hypersensitive the person is to the bites. The bites themselves may be itchy but if left without additional irritation they should clear up within a week. While fairly rare some people have developed severe reactions from bed bug bites. Anything more than a small reaction should be investigated further by your doctor.
