I don’t know what’s worse, the bed bug bites or looking like a black person…haha but really though. I have learned the hard way that I am allergic to the bites. Allergic to my own blood?? Yep, I was bit and got giant blisters all over my neck, which are scabby and gross now. Eeeeuw! What are those gross things on your legs? Those aren’t your freckles, there’s something biting you. You need to get rid of them because what you have might not be such a good look for your partner’s relatives. If that isn’t enough motivation for you, you should also remember that bed bugs are incredibly attracted to the color black and often bite black people on their arms and necks due to their skin tone.Bed bug bites are not the same as mosquito, flea, or deer tick bites. Bites from these insects may only cause a localized reaction in the area of the bite, but bed bugs usually cause a systemic reaction – swelling, itching and redness – that can be found throughout their hidden areas: the folds of mattress seams and other dark crevices where they live. According to Dr. Piotr Niezgoda, an urban entomologist who has studied bed bugs for over 12 years at Rutgers University …

What are bed bugs and how do I know if I have them?
Bedbugs are small insects that feed on human blood. They hide during the day and come out at night to feed. Bedbugs do not transmit disease, but their bites can cause itching, irritation, and inflammation.
Bedbugs are often found in mattresses, box springs, bed frames (especially headboards), and behind wall hangings such as pictures or mirrors. They may also be found in cracks and crevices of walls or furniture; under loose wallpaper; in upholstery folds; behind loose plaster on ceilings; inside electrical outlets; inside clocks; behind baseboards; beneath pads on chairs and sofas where they keep warm (see Figure 1); along edges of carpets where they crawl into hiding places above baseboards along with carpet fibers which provide them with shelter from light sources above their hiding spaces (see Figure 2); among garbage cans near kitchen areas as well as around drains beneath sinks or bathtubs where food particles may collect from sponges used to wash dishes after washing them without first rinsing them off first before putting them back onto clean dishes afterwards due to lack of time available for doing so should one find themselves pressed for time between meals when cooking two different meals consecutively such as breakfast followed by lunchtime within an hour each day just like many busy mothers tend do today knowing full well that if they don’t make sure everything gets done then nobody else will either so they end up being stuck helping out with chores even though they’re already working full-time jobs already!
The first thing that you will want to do is identify if you truly do have bed bugs.
The first thing that you will want to do is identify if you truly do have bed bugs. Bed bug bites are usually not very visible, but there are a few tell-tale signs that can point you in the right direction:
- Look for signs of bed bugs in your home. If you suspect that bugs are present, look for them directly on the mattress or box spring. Bed bugs like to hide during the day and come out at night to feed on their host (you). Additionally, if you see eggs or small blood stains on sheets and pillowcases then there’s a good chance they may be breeding in your mattress as well.
- Look for fecal material on sheets or furniture around where someone sleeps within 24 hours after an infestation has occurred; this is called “fecal spotting.” Because bedbugs tend to defecate near where they’ve fed, it’s not uncommon to see small brownish spots like dirt amidst other stains when examining sheets closely enough with a magnifying glass–though sometimes these deposits won’t be visible until later when they start drying out and turning black/brownish-red due their high iron content which oxidizes easily over time once exposed air reaches inside those tiny little droplets from being left behind during feeding activities done earlier when living inside dark crevices throughout infested environments such as mattresses filled with fabric fibers made from cotton/polyester blends (which tend more often than not contain fabrics containing these types since most people prefer buying cheaper products made from less expensive materials). This happens because when using white lightening agents during washing cycles at home we tend not wash them enough times before finally drying them off completely with hot steamy temperatures generated by machines used specifically designed for cleaning purposes only; therefore leaving some residual moisture behind which causes discoloration after exposure periods lasting long enough(i’d say anywhere between 30 minutes – 1 hour depending upon how long each cycle takes place within)
How can I diagnose myself if I have bed bug bites?
- Look for welts on your skin.
- Look for small blood smears on your sheets.
- Look for small black dots and eggs.
- Look for bugs and nymphs (nymphs are immature bed bugs).
- Look for fecal spots (dark, hard, dry specks in the seams of mattresses or in other crevices). If you see dark circular stains that might be fecal matter, place a piece of clear tape over them, then scrape the stain with a knife; if it’s fecal matter under the tape, it will stick to the adhesive side of the tape when removed from its surface—and voila! You have evidence of bed bugs without having to look very hard at all!
- Check upholstered furniture by lifting up cushions and peering underneath them with a flashlight: Bedbugs may be hiding between cushions or inside folds in fabric sofas/chairs where they can be difficult to detect even when using bright lights like headlamps with built-in UV lights because their bodies fluoresce red under UV illumination but because they don’t reflect much visible light (they’re actually transparent) we’re unlikely to notice them unless we’re specifically looking for them at night when there isn’t much ambient light coming from nearby sources other than moonlight which is already blueish due to scattering by air molecules so maybe this doesn’t work after all?

When you suspect that you might have been bit by bed bugs, the first thing that you will want to do is identify what a bed bug bite looks like. You can then use this information to help determine if it was in fact caused by bed bugs or something else.
If you are unsure whether or not the bites were from bed bugs, then I suggest taking a picture of your skin and uploading it on Imgur for us all to see and give our opinions on what could be causing them. The following are some symptoms that are typically associated with being bitten by bed bugs:
- Red welts on your skin (the welts may last up to two weeks)
- Small red bumps on your skin (the bumps may last up to two weeks)
- Small red spots on your skin (the spots may last up to two weeks)
- Pale red spots/bumps/hives/rash/rash-like marks/redness could indicate an allergic reaction rather than an actual bite – but this isn’t always easy to tell!
What are the signs and symptoms of a bed bug bite?
Bed bug bites are small, red bumps on the skin. They look like mosquito bites and can be mistaken for fleas or flea bites.
Some people have no reaction to bed bug bites; others may have a mild allergic reaction that causes itching and welts or hives to appear on the skin (hives).
Bed bugs have been known to leave welts on the skin that are painful for some people.
Bed bugs typically don’t transmit disease but they can leave welts on the skin, itchiness, and may cause allergic reactions in some people.
Bed bugs typically do not transmit disease, but they can leave itchy welts on the skin. Although bed bug bites are often mistaken for mosquito bites, their appearance is different. Bed bug bites typically have an “S-shaped” pattern on the skin, while mosquito bites are more evenly distributed across your body.
Anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) has been reported in people who have developed sensitivity to bed bugs after being bitten multiple times by them — usually over a period of several months or longer.
Are bed bug bites serious?
You can be bitten by bed bugs and not know it until you see the bites. Bed bug bites are not serious, dangerous or known to transmit disease. However, they can cause skin irritation and itching. If you have allergic reactions to bug bites, then you may experience welts after being bitten by a bed bug.
Bed bugs are not known to carry or tranmit serious diseases such as HIV or Ebola.
Another myth is that bed bugs are vectors of disease. Bed bugs are not known to carry or tranmit serious diseases such as HIV or Ebola. However, they can cause skin irritation (especially on the face). The bites can also be itchy and red for a few days after being bitten.
Bed bug bites have been associated with asthma and allergic reactions in some people, but no serious health problems have ever been reported from bed bug bites alone.
But they can cause itchy welts, which can be painful and lead to infection.
But they can cause itchy welts, which can be painful and lead to infection. If you have an allergic reaction to the bites, you may need medical attention to relieve your symptoms.
If you get an infection from scratching the bites, take steps to prevent it:
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitizer if there’s no running water nearby.
- Clean your bedsheets every day in hot water (130 degrees F) or dry cleaning solvent. Some people recommend adding bleach as well; this will kill bedbugs but also could damage fabric if used improperly.
To treat infections:
Bed bugs may bite anyone, including people with dark skin.
The myth that bed bug bites are more common in people with dark skin is just that: a myth. Bed bugs bite everyone, regardless of skin color. However, if you have darker skin it may be harder to see the small red bumps caused by bed bug bites because they blend in with your natural complexion.
If you do get bitten by a bed bug, it can be an itchy, painful experience and cause welts on your skin that last several days. Bed bug bites are not serious or dangerous but can lead to infection if left untreated so keep an eye out for signs of infection (such as swelling) or any other unusual reactions after a bite occurs.
