Do Bed Bug Bites Itch
Do bed bug bites itch? In short, yes, bed bug bites do itch. In fact, the first sign of bed bugs is red clustered bites on your body that are itchy. It can be hard to distinguish bed bug bites from mosquito bites or bites of other insects. The sites of bed bug bites become welts and are accompanied with an intense itch. The body reacts to the saliva which is injected by the bed bugs—hence the itching and welts. No two humans will react in the exact same manner to bed bugs bites. One person’s reaction may be quite severe, while another’s may be mild.
It does not hurt when a bed bug bites; however, some people have an allergic reaction to the saliva of the bug, which usually shows up between 24 hours and three days after being bitten. This results in a red, raised skin bump or welt that is both inflamed and extremely itchy. Both the itching and the welt may last several days. Bed bug bites typically occur on uncovered parts of the body such as the face, arms, neck, and hands, and often appear in a row of two or more.
Anti-itch creams and lotions can help alleviate the itching that comes from the bites. Of course in order to stop bed bugs from biting, the bed bug infestation must be exterminated. In many cases, it’s best to contact a pest control company.
