You'll need to see a doctor to determine if debridement is a viable treatment plan for you and, if so, which type. According to the American Academy of Dermatology , the most common bites and stings in the United States come from mosquitoes, fleas, spiders, bees, wasps, hornets, biting flies, mites, ticks, fire ants and bedbugs.
Many people do not react at all to the bite of a bed bug—many bites leave no mark and go completely unnoticed. Unlike those of other insects, bed bug bites may sometimes appear in tight lines of multiple, small, red marks where multiple bed bugs have fed along an exposed area.
If you unsure of what's biting you, a board-certified dermatologist can often look at the bites and tell you whether bed bugs are the cause. As for getting rid of bed bugs, it often requires professional help. Pesticides are usually necessary to kill bed bugs and their eggs, but using these on or near your bed can be hazardous to your health.
Bed bug bites usually do not pose a serious medical threat. The best way to treat a bite is to avoid scratching the area and apply antiseptic creams or lotions and take an antihistamine. Bed bug infestations are commonly treated by insecticide spraying.
Bed bugs are a nuisance and more people are discovering the sad fact that a bed bug infestation has nothing to do with hygiene. Even the cleanest and swankiest hotels and homes could still get them. If you have a cat or several cats for that matter, then you may be wondering if bed bugs can harm them.
Do Bed Bug Bites Hurt After Being Bitten? In general, you're not going to feel pain after receiving a bed bug bite. There are, of course, exceptions. The first exception is that after a few days, the itching may set in where you have bed bug bites.
