Bed Bug Bite Progression

Bed bug bite progression is one important thing which everyone need to know when they get or think that they have bed bug infestation. Bed bugs are the insect that no one likes to discuss about. At first there was little or no knowledge about them and their effects but now the word has spread through social media and news articles have been published. Bed bite progressions are excellent at demonstrating how the body reacts to antigens, or the proteins on a given organism. Within the process of biting, however, some people may not notice any progression at all. Other people may notice very little complaints for the first few days and then find themselves itchy and miserable. This can also be accompanied by other symptoms including sores and blisters in certain cases. These bed bug bite progressions show what can happen if you do struggle with bed bug bites from an allergic reaction over time. Bed bug bites can sound trivial to anyone who doesn’t have them, but they definitely can be painful and cause serious distress. Like any bug bite, bed bug bites have their own progression. Just like the mosquito bites or flea bites on humans, bed bugs bite the skin of their victim and inject an enzyme into it. That enzyme is mixed with saliva and causes a rash to appear. But not just any rash!

Bed Bug Bite Progression

Bed bugs bite and then leave a red welt in their wake.

Bed bug bites are the most common sign of bed bugs. Bites appear as a red welt on your skin, which can be itchy or burning. Bed bug bites can vary in size from very small to quite large. The largest reported bed bug bite is larger than the size of a quarter (about 1 inch across). A single bed bug bite is not uncommon, but multiple bites that form into clusters on exposed areas like arms, legs and back should raise alarm bells for you.

If you have been bitten by a tiny mosquito-like insect several times in the same spot, it could be due to fleas or chiggers rather than bed bugs!

Bed bug bites are always in clusters of three.

When bed bug bites are present, they will always be in clusters of three. Two bites will be on either side of the body, with one bite in the middle. This type of bite pattern is consistent across all ages and genders.

You can have a single bite or multiple bites on top of each other, but the line formed between them will always be straight if it’s a bed bug bite. This is important because it allows you to identify an infestation quickly when you see this unique pattern forming on your skin.

If you have any open sores or cuts, bed bugs will go to them.

  • Bed bugs are attracted to blood.
  • Bed bugs are attracted to body heat.
  • Bed bugs are attracted to CO2 (carbon dioxide).
  • Bed bugs are attracted to open wounds and other areas with thinner skin, like your eyelids and mouth.

The progression of symptoms after a bed bug bite is: redness, swelling, itching and pain around the area of the bite; large red bumps that look like mosquito bites or pimples; small blisters; bleeding from all these lesions over many hours or days (this is when you will probably get a secondary infection from scratching so much); then scabbing over with crusts as it heals up again (during which time I’ve had some people say their bites feel “sore”).

Bed bug bites can occur anywhere exposed skin is while sleeping.

Bed bug bites can occur anywhere exposed skin is while sleeping. That’s because bed bugs don’t bite through your clothes to feed on you, but instead pierce the skin and drink blood from the capillaries just under the surface of your skin. Bed bug bites look like tiny red bumps that may itch or be painful.

Bed bug bites don’t happen immediately after you’ve been bitten.

  • Bed bug bites don’t happen immediately after you’ve been bitten.
  • The bed bugs have to feed for several days before the bite will show up, so it’s best to check your mattress every day for at least a week after you think you were bitten.

Bed bug bites leave a signature mark that’s easy to notice.

A bed bug bite is relatively painless, but it can be itchy. The most common sites for bed bug bites are the arms, legs, neck and face. Bed bug bites tend to appear in clusters of three: two small marks and a larger central mark that may be swollen or red. This characteristic pattern helps identify a bedbug bite from other types of insect bites such as flea and mosquito bites that usually occur alone or in pairs.

Bedbug bites on exposed skin usually take up to a week to heal completely, but they frequently leave behind an itchy rash similar to hives (urticaria). The intensity of the allergic reaction varies from person-to-person based on their immune system; some people don’t react at all while others experience severe reactions including swelling around the bite area as well as other symptoms like nausea or vomiting due to anaphylaxis.
