Bed Bug Bites And Symptoms

Did you wake up to mysterious bites on your skin? Did you inspect your home for signs of a bug infestation and came up with nothing? This was exactly the experience of a lot of people who were recently being affected by bed bugs. You see, bed bugs aren’t dangerous or harmful but their bites can be very uncomfortable. Let’s find out more about bed bug bites and symptoms. It took a lot for me to finally admit I might be suffering from bed bug bites and symptoms. After all, my dermatologist spent just 15 seconds looking at the part of my arm where I had the rash and said, “Yep, it’s an allergic reaction.” Not even a close look or any questions (there are some tests they can do). I was left with the task of discovering the root cause. You start scratching. You can’t help it. Two, three, four times a night you wake up and scratch furiously at your skin. Each time, you hope that the bites will stop stinging and burning. They don’t though. So why are you having bed bug bites? What are they? What should you do if you have them? I’ll answer these questions and more so keep reading.

Bed Bug Bites And Symptoms

How do you know if you have bed bugs?

Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to spot, so it’s important that you do your homework before assuming you have them. If you think you have bed bugs but aren’t sure, try checking for the following signs:

  • Blood spots on your sheets (especially around the seams)
  • Bed bug eggs or shells (these look like tiny white dots)
  • Live bed bugs themselves (they’re brown-red in color and about 1/4″ long), or their shed skins (also red).

Bed bug bites

Bed bug bites are highly itchy and can easily be mistaken for other insect bites, such as mosquito or flea bites. The most common symptoms include:

  • Itching
  • Red bumps or welts on the skin, which may be accompanied by swelling of the lymph nodes in your neck
  • A rash around the bite site

You may also experience some pain in your joints that gets worse at night, fever, fatigue and malaise (that feeling of being sick). If you’ve checked yourself thoroughly and think that you’ve been bitten by a bed bug but aren’t sure what kind of disease they carry or whether they’ll make you ill – don’t worry! While it’s true that some people experience severe allergic reactions known as anaphylaxis after being bitten by bed bugs—and even if there’s no visible reaction to the bite itself—you probably won’t get sick from one of these critters unless their saliva comes into contact with broken skin on another part of your body (for example: through scratching). So long as this doesn’t happen prior to treatment then everything should be fine!

Symptoms of bed bug bites

  • Itching
  • Red welts
  • Swollen areas on the skin
  • Blistering (especially in cases where you’re allergic to bed bugs)
  • Pain and burning sensations at the site of a bite.

In addition to itching, red welts, swelling and blistering, some people experience other symptoms after being bitten by bed bugs:

  • Skin infections: If you have a cut or scrape on your skin when you are bitten by these insects, there’s a chance that an infection could occur in the area of your skin that was bitten. This can lead to inflammation and pain as well as other symptoms like fever and chills. If left untreated, it may even spread beyond the area where you were bitten into surrounding tissue or deeper into your body—causing further health problems along with those already mentioned above (itching etc.).
  • Allergic reactions: Some people may develop an allergy after being exposed repeatedly to bites from bed bugs over time; this can trigger hives or other reactions such as difficulty breathing (known medically as asthma). Because allergies can be quite serious if left untreated for too long without medication—and because many people don’t realize they’re allergic until this happens anyway—it’s important not only for yourself but also those around you ensure that anyone who has been exposed gets treated quickly so no one else gets hurt either physically or emotionally due to lack of proper treatment options available at home due financial constraints imposed upon them by low income levels.”

What does a bed bug look like?

What does a bed bug look like?

Bed bugs are small, flat insects that feed on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded creatures. They are often found in mattresses, electrical outlets and light fixtures. Bed bugs are oval-shaped with six legs. They’re usually brown, red or black in color. Their bites can be painful!

How can you get rid of bed bugs?

Bed bug bites can be treated at home by using an over-the-counter antihistamine such as Benadryl. If the skin is broken, apply an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.

If you are experiencing a severe reaction to the bites, see your doctor immediately. You may need antihistamines or steroids if you have developed hives and other allergic reactions from bedbug bites.

If you suspect bed bugs may be in your home, it’s important to act fast and properly.

Bed bugs are notoriously hard to detect, and since they’re often not very visible, it can be difficult for a layperson to even know if they’re present. Bed bug infestations can also take a long time to eradicate; even after removing the insects from your home, you may have to be vigilant against future outbreaks.

If you suspect bed bugs may be in your home, it’s important to act fast and properly. The best thing you can do is contact a professional pest control service so that they can evaluate the situation and determine the right course of action for eradicating these pests from your space.
