BEDBUG SIGNS

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A BED BUG BITE

The most telltale sign of a bed bug problem isn't the bed bug's bite. 
"Bites on the skin are a poor indicator of a bed bug infestation. Bed bug bites can look like bites from other insects (such as mosquitoes or chiggers), rashes (such as eczema or fungal infections) or even hives. Some people do not react to bed bug bites at all."

The percentage of people who do not react to bed bug bites is commonly stated as 70%, but a lengthy discussion as to why this is wrong rages on. The new evidence implies that "repeated exposure" to bed bug bites is the key to whether or not you react to the anesthetic in the bed bug's saliva. In other words, if you have bed bug bites, treatment requires more than just stopping the itching. You have to get rid of the infestation as well.

REACTIONS TO BITES

When people are bitten, they often do not notice at first. It’s a

possibility that one reason could be that these blood sucking

insects feed late in the night, before the breaking of dawn.

Humans are often in a deep REM sleep during that time. Upon

arising, individuals can find bite marks; however it can take up to

ten days for adverse or allergic reactions to develop.


No two people react to bites in the same way, although some reactions are similar. Because of the saliva that they leave behind, the first reaction is usually severe itching and irritation. This is often followed by a raised appearance on the contacted area. Some people, however, react by having welts and hives all over the body. Still others will have small, pinkish bumps that are concentrated in one area.
