How To Make Bed Bug Bites Disappear

Finding bed bugs in your home can be a frustrating experience. Not only do you have to get rid of the bed bugs, but your skin can also be affected by the bites. Bed bug bites are different than other bug bites, because they’re highly allergic. So if you’ve had this problem, it’s very likely your body will react to the bites more than someone else’s. Also, they usually swell. This article will talk about what bedbug bites look like and how to treat them at home. Bites from bed bugs can cause redness and irritation, but it’s the itching that makes bed bugs so unbearable. You’ll want an effective remedy for your bites as soon as possible. Thankfully, there are several things you can do at home to relieve your suffering and eliminate the problem altogether. Bed bug bites are a common problem in the United States. The fact is that many people are not even aware that they have had an encounter with bed bugs. Those who do realize they have been bitten by these tiny insects find itchiness and welts on their skin the morning after sleeping in hotel rooms or visiting friends. Bed bug bites can be found on any part of the body, however they most often occur on exposed skin typically somewhere between the knee and shoulder area.

How To Make Bed Bug Bites Disappear


Bed bugs get a bad rap—unless you’re the one who’s been bitten by one. Bed bug bites may cause itchy welts similar to mosquito or flea bites and can leave you feeling self-conscious about your skin. Fortunately, there are ways to treat and prevent them. In this article, we’ll show you how to avoid bed bug bites in the first place, and what to do once they’ve happened.

Ice can help cool down the inflammation.

Ice can help cool down the inflammation. Apply ice for no more than 20 minutes at a time, and don’t leave it on longer than that. Wrap the ice in a thin cloth just in case you get frostbite (which is not as scary as it sounds). If your bites are really bad, you can re-apply ice every few hours until they go away completely.

Honey can soothe and relieve the itchiness.

Honey is another remedy that can help soothe and relieve the itchiness of bed bug bites. Apply some honey to the bite, and leave it on for a few minutes before washing off with warm water. Repeat this process several times a day until your bites are healed. You could also use raw honey on its own or with cinnamon, which has healing properties of its own. Honey may even help prevent scarring from bed bug bites in some cases!

However, don’t use honey on babies under 12 months old because they’re more susceptible to bacterial infections and might be at risk if they have an allergic reaction to it

Neem oil is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory product.

Alcohol is a natural cleanser to prevent germs from spreading.

To prevent contamination and further infection, it’s best to use alcohol as an antiseptic. The CDC advises that you dilute 70 percent isopropyl alcohol with water before applying it to your skin.

Isopropyl alcohol is an active ingredient used in many over-the-counter products, including some lotions and creams. It can be found at most drugstores or pharmacies and also online at Amazon.

You should only use 70 percent isopropyl alcohol if you’re treating bites on your hands or face; otherwise, you should stick with lower concentrations of the substance because of its harsh effects on sensitive skin.
