Bed bug bite symptoms

Surprisingly, it takes a few days to notice the symptoms of bedbug bites. Some people never develop noticeable bed bug bite symptoms. Then how can one come to know there are bedbugs in the house or you have been bitten by a bed bug? Let's find out!

  • Itchy: Most people who are bitten by bed bugs experience itchiness. There would be a certain degree of discomfort and a burning painful sensation. The itching and scratching would be the reason one can not enjoy a peaceful sleep at night.
  • Red and swollen skin : A person that has been bitten by a bug would wake up with some marks on his body. It is very obvious that if blood is sucked out of the body, he/she is bound to get a reddish patch on the skin due to the swelling. Also, the scratching leads to reddening of the skin. As the surface of the skin is being compromised, the body is likely to have infection.
  • Arranged in a rough line or a cluster: Unlike some other insects that leave bites here and there, bed bugs tend to follow a pattern and leave straight rows of bites on the body. The reason for this pattern is that bed bugs are so tiny that it takes time for them to travel leaving a mark of a line on the skin. By the time you’ve noticed the mark, they would’ve gone further and struck a few times on your body.
  • No trace of the culprits: One cannot expect to find the bedbugs after it bites. The bugs leave no spots on most occasions, which means the person can feel the bite but won’t find the evidence of bed bugs around it.
