Bed bug bites are referred to as “breakfast, lunch and dinner” for a reason. The first thing that comes to mind when you think of bed bugs is the red, itchy bumps on your skin. But these aren’t the only indication of bed bugs. Well, maybe they are but let’s just assume they’re not a definite sign of bed bugs. Bed bug bite photos show other spots you might not have known you could get a bed bug bite – like in between your eyes! I hear about bed bugs on TV all the time and with good reason, these nasty critters can be found in any city or town in America. So what are bed bugs? Bed bugs are small insects that are brown in color and grow to about .16 of an inch long. Their size is the leading factor why they can stay hidden for so long on a mattress, clothing or even inside cracks in the walls of your home where you would never think to look. They suck blood from humans by piercing the skin, usually on exposed areas like the arms or legs, but many people do not even feel their bites because they use a numbing agent when they feed. Some people don’t even know they have had a bite until they awaken with ant-bite welts on their body. Unfortunately, you will always know if you have bed bugs because they leave itchy red bumps and sores behind when feeding.

Basic information about the bed bug bites
Bed bugs are small insects that live in mattresses, bed frames, and other areas around the home. They feed on human blood by biting their host during the night while they sleep. Bed bugs do not spread diseases but may cause skin irritation to some people who are sensitive to their bites.
The most common symptoms from a bed bug bite are:
- Itching of the skin where they bit you
- Red bumps or welts at the place where they bit you
The symptoms of bed bug bites
The symptoms of bed bug bites are itchy red bumps that appear in a line or cluster. They usually develop within a few days after being bitten by a bed bug, though it can take longer if the bites are on other parts of the body. The bites can occur anywhere on your body but are most commonly found on the face, neck, arms and hands.
It’s important to remember that not all itchy red bumps are caused by bed bugs — there are many other conditions that cause similar symptoms (like insect stings or allergic reactions). However, if you have an unexplained rash or skin irritation with no known cause and suspect you’ve been bitten by a bed bug recently (especially if there’s evidence of infestation), go see your doctor to rule out any serious medical issues before treating yourself at home with over-the-counter remedies like cortisone cream or antihistamines
The general treatment advice
- Wash the area with soap and water, but don’t scrub or scratch the site. You can also use a topical anti-itch cream such as Calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream to help relieve itching. 2. Take an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which helps reduce swelling and itching. 3. If you are experiencing severe reactions or have been stung multiple times, seek medical attention immediately

Bed bug bites are the most common type of insect bite to humans. They cause red spots with a few or many tiny puncture marks on top, and they’re usually itchy. Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human blood during the night while people are sleeping; they leave small red marks on your skin, which can be mistaken for mosquito bites. However, bed bugs have a much more serious effect on some people than others; those with allergies may have severe reactions that require medical attention. If you think that you might be allergic to bed bug bites, consult your doctor immediately if you notice any symptoms after being bitten by one of these parasites!

Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human blood, usually at night while the host is sleeping. They often live in mattresses and other furniture. Bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases; however, bites can cause skin irritation for some people and allergic reactions for others.
In order to treat a bed bug infestation, you should contact a pest control professional or hire an exterminator to inspect your home for signs of bed bug activity (such as clusters of black specks that are excrement or egg casings). You may need to throw away items that cannot be washed or dried on high heat because they may harbor eggs.
