How to Treat Bed Bug Bites: Treatments for bed bug bite symptoms

You’ve noticed you have itchy red marks that seem like bed bug bite symptoms. Not sure what kind of bite you have? Use our helpful guide to distinguish bed bug bites symptoms from those of other insect bites.

Fortunately, it’s been proven that in most cases bed bug bites are not lethal and rarely require intensive medical treatment unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Even if they’re not harmful to your health, bed bug bites are itchy and annoying. How to treat bed bug bites varies a little depending on who you ask, but here are a few treatments for bed bug bites:

  • Apply a skin cream containing hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone soothes itchiness, helping to reduce scratching, which can cause further complications.
  • Take an oral antihistamine. Antihistamines help reduce swelling and irritation caused by the minor allergic reaction to bed bug bites.
  • Ice them. Ice reduces swelling and numbs itchiness.

Bed bug bites should disappear on their own within a week or two. If you notice your bed bug bite symptoms are not disappearing, you may need to take an antibiotic for an infected bite. Consult with your doctor to ask how to treat bed bug bites in your situation.

The best treatment for bed bug bites is to get rid of the bed bugs causing them as early as possible. If you notice you’re waking up with bed bug bite symptoms, contact a professional exterminator to deal with the problem before it worsens.
