What do bed bug bites look like?
Bed bug bites typically appear as small, raised, red bumps on the skin that can be accompanied by itching and swelling. They often appear in a linear or clustered pattern on areas of the body that are exposed while sleeping, such as the face, neck, arms, and hands. In some cases, bed bug bites may not show up for several days after the initial bite. Bed bug bites can be difficult to distinguish from other types of insect bites or skin conditions, so it’s important to look for other signs of a bed bug infestation, such as blood stains on bedding or the presence of live bugs or their fecal matter in the area. If you suspect that you have bed bug bites, it’s important to seek medical attention to determine if they are causing an allergic reaction or if there is a risk of infection.
