What’s the best way to treat bedbug bites?

When bedbugs bite, you may not feel the sting. It can take a few days for the symptoms to develop.

About 30-60% of people never develop a reaction to a bedbug bite.

Some symptoms include an itchy bite, red and swollen area, burning sensation and fluid-filled blisters.

Scratching bug bites can cause them to bleed or become infected.

One of the best ways to treat bedbug bites includes applying an over-the-counter steroid cream to decrease inflammation.

You can also take an oral antihistamine to reduce itching and burning.

It is also advised to use an over-the-counter pain reliever to relieve swelling and itchiness in the affected area.

You can take Benadryl before sleeping to contain the pain and itching.
