Allergic Reactions

Not everyone has allergic reactions to bed bug bites. If you do have a reaction, the bites might appear right away as red spots, but it can take up to two weeks for a reaction to occur. Some bites can turn into larger red spots that itch for a few days. Some people even have both immediate and delayed reactions.

Signs of Bed Bug Bites

It can be hard to tell whether your bites are from bed bugs or another pest. Bed bug bites tend to show up in groups as these pests feed in a rather unique way. Their bites can appear on any part of your body that’s exposed when you sleep, such as your arms, neck or face. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t count on everyone in your home having bite reactions to determine if you have a bed bug problem. Some people never have a reaction to these bites.
