One of the first signs that you may have slept in a bed with bed bugs are the bites you see after you wake up.
However, it is difficult to tell the difference between a bed bug bite and a bite from any other insect when you look at them in isolation to the other signs.
So, how do you know whether the bite you’ve received is from a bed bug? Here are a few things to look out for.
Looking at the pattern of bites, the location on your body and the approximate time they happened may help to correctly identify the culprit of your insect bites.
Bed bug bites are generally small, flat, or raised bumps on the skin. Redness, swelling, and itching commonly occur on these spots.
Several bites tend to appear in a line or row along an exposed area, such as an arm or leg as a single bed bug may bite more than once in the same area, if disturbed whilst feeding. Bites found in different parts of the body can indicate being bitten by several different bed bugs.

Bites often occur at night when we are sleeping.
Prevention is better than cure! Look for signs of bed bugs as soon as you arrive in a hotel.
However, if you do happen to get bitten by a bed bug or two and the bites are causing you pain, seek medical treatment as soon as possible.
Bed bugs are not known to carry any infectious diseases but everyone will react to a bite differently.
