Bedbug Bite Treatment

Bedbug Bite Treatment FAQs

What are bedbugs?

Bedbugs are small insects that have long antennae and are rust colored with flat bodies. These pests survive by feeding on the blood of living hosts, most often people. They're most active at night, and stay close to the area where they feed. This is why they're frequently discovered in mattresses. Bedbugs have been around for thousands of years, and have plagued mankind with irritating infestations. However, bedbugs were basically wiped out after World War II thanks to the pesticide DDT. However, DDT has since been banned because it was found to be extremely hazardous. These days, there are safe pesticides on the market that can be used to get rid of these household pests.

Where are bedbugs found?

Bedbugs are prevalent in areas of South America, Africa and Asia. They can live anywhere, and an increase in international travel and immigration have reintroduced the bedbug to our society. These pests easily stay hidden in suitcases, which is how they got from other countries to ours.

Once the bugs reach their new home, they can live in mattresses, upholstered furniture, in walls, behind baseboards, and in carpeting.

Do bedbug bites hurt?

While a bedbug is biting, no pain is felt. However the next day, you may experience burning, itching, swelling, and red welts or bumps. Fortunately bedbugs don't carry dangerous diseases, however their bites can leave unpleasant side effects.

What do bedbug bites look like?

Bedbug bites look similar to mosquito bites. You may also notice blisters or welts on the skin that are red or inflamed. These blisters and welts may be itchy or painful. They may be mistaken for mosquito bites, however, if you go to bed with no bites and wake up covered in them, a mosquito may not be to blame. Rarely, a person bitten by a bedbug will exhibit absolutely no symptoms whatsoever.

How do I treat bedbug bites?

Bedbug Bite Treatment FAQs is fairly simple. Basically, you need something to reduce swelling and alleviate uncomfortable symptoms like itching and burning. An icepack can be perfect for the swelling. As for the itching and burning, try calamine lotion or any other cream designed to alleviate discomfort from insect bites. You may also want to try soaking in Epsom salts or colloidal oatmeal baths, both of which can dry out blisters and reduce uncomfortable symptoms.
