Bed Bugs Rash
If you are suffering from bed bugs rash, it can be unsightly and very, very itchy. But how do you know if your rash is a bed bug rash? Well, the problem is that you don’t.
Not all bed bug rashes look the same. And they don’t necessarily appear on you when you wake up in the morning after having been bitten. In fact, bed bug rashes can appear 2 to 4 weeks after you’ve been bitten. Which is why so many get blamed on other insect bites or sensitivity to other things. And it’s also why so many people don’t discover they have a bed bug infestation until it’s a pretty big bed bug infestation!
How does a bed bugs rash occur?
Bed bugs rash is caused from bed bug bites. The bed bug secures itself to your skin using claws, and then it inserts its beak into your skin. Inside the beak are two tubes- one sucks up the blood while the other injects saliva into the wound, which stops the blood clotting, making it easier for the bed bug to keep sucking your blood. Also the saliva acts as an anesthetic to numb the skin (so you don’t feel the bed bug biting you!) and this is what causes the itching sensation. Depending on your sensitivity, you can get a bed bug rash from just a couple of these bites.
Although no two bed bug rashes look alike, there are certain things to look out for. For example, bed bugs tend to leave straight rows of bites, unlike some other insects that leave bites here and there. So if your rash looks like it’s made up of straight rows of bumps, that could mean it’s a bed bug rash. If, within the rash, the bumps are in clusters of three that can also mean it’s a bed bug rash – these clusters of three are commonly known as breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Sometimes the rash can also begin as a series of small bruises which then develop into a rash before leaving the skin with a darker coloured rash a couple of weeks later.
To some people a bed bug rash can be quite mild but to other people, especially kids with eczema or people with sensitivity to insect bites, they can be very painful. And if kids scratch too hard and break the skin they can even end up with a nasty bacterial infection.
But just because you don’t have a bed bug rashes, doesn’t mean you don’t have bed bugs. In fact up to 40% of people don’t have any reaction at all to a bed bug’s bite. Which is all the more reason why a professional inspection for bed bugs is important.
