Bed Bug Bites Home Remedies Treatment

Take some over-the-counter antihistamines to control the itching.

If you’re suffering from a severe allergic reaction to the bites, you can also take an antihistamine. Antihistamines are helpful in reducing itching and irritation caused by bed bug bites. They may also help you sleep better at night and reduce your risk of swelling or hives.

Antihistamines work by blocking histamine receptors in the body, which prevents histamine from causing allergy symptoms. Some common examples include Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin (loratadine). These drugs are available over-the-counter without a prescription, but they’re not recommended as a first line of defense against allergies because they aren’t very efficient at treating them — they only work on about 30 percent of people who take them!

Some people experience side effects like drowsiness and sedation when using antihistamines; these side effects can be especially pronounced if you drink alcohol while taking one of these medications because the combination will increase absorption into your bloodstream.”

Put an ice pack on the site of each bite to reduce inflammation.

  • To reduce inflammation, you can apply an ice pack to the site of each bite for about 15 minutes.
  • Use a clean towel to wrap the ice pack in to prevent direct contact with your skin.
  • Don’t leave it on too long or you could cause damage.

Gently wash the bites with soap and warm water.

  • Using warm water, gently wash the bite area with a mild soap.
  • Wash for about 20 seconds, then pat dry with a clean washcloth or cotton ball.
  • Use an antiseptic solution to help control any skin infection that may occur around the bite site and make sure you don’t scratch or rub it as this can lead to scarring and further complications for your health condition.(1)

Try treating bed bug bites with a baking soda paste applied with a cotton ball.

The baking soda paste can be applied directly to the bites and left on for 10 minutes, then washed off. Repeat this twice a day for a week. Whether it works or not, you’ll feel less itchy by the end of the week.

To make the paste, mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 3 teaspoons of water until you have an even consistency (it should be like toothpaste). You can apply this with a cotton ball or gauze pad.

Alternate hot and cold compresses on the bites.

Alternate hot and cold compresses on the bites.

  • To treat bed bug bites, alternate hot and cold compresses. First, apply a warm compress to the area for about five minutes—this will help to increase blood flow to the affected area and reduce swelling. Then, place an ice pack or bag of frozen peas (no longer than 20 minutes) over that same spot—this will reduce redness and inflammation while also reducing itching. You can continue this process as often as necessary until you feel relief from your symptoms; just remember not to place an ice pack directly against your skin without any kind of cloth in between!
  • If you have sensitive skin or are concerned about side effects like frostbite or burns from using too much heat on your skin, try alternating between warm water with vinegar (1 part vinegar mixed with 2 parts water) or lemon juice instead of cold air conditioning air instead in order to avoid irritation during treatment sessions

Bed bug bites can be annoying but they are not too serious

Bed bug bites can be annoying but they are not too serious. The only time bed bugs become dangerous is if you have an allergic reaction to them, which happens when you have been bitten so many times that your body begins to react strongly to the bites.

In this case, there is a chance of anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction), which can be life-threatening if left untreated. If you start to experience any symptoms like dizziness or difficulty breathing after being bitten by bed bugs, go see a doctor immediately; they will know how best to treat and care for you.

If it’s just itching that’s got you worried though—and it should be—there’s no need for concern: bed bug bites heal naturally within a few days whether or not anyone tries anything else on top of washing up regularly and keeping your house clean as possible.
