Bed bug rash is a term given to victims that suffer from multiple bed bug bites.
In cases where a victim suffers from numerous bed bug bites, skin can become itchy and inflamed, thus mirroring a rash. However, it is not the mere presence of bed bugs that causes abnormal skin reactions and “bed bug rash.” It the numbing venom in bed bug bites that causes skin to react, meaning bed bugs must bite you to cause a skin problem.
What does “bed bug rash” look like? It depends on the person suffering the bed bug bites and their sensitivity to bed bug venom as well as the severity of the bed bug infestation. Some people do not react to bed bug venom at all though the percentage of people who don’t react is highly debated.
Larger infestations result in more bites and can make the problem worse. In extreme cases, some people suffer from dozens of bites. This can make skin extremely inflamed and red, mirroring a rash, though the source of the problem is the individual bites.
So what should you do if you’re suffering from a “bed bug rash”? Seek bed bug treatment immediately. There are some methods to soothe bed bug bites, but the best way to curb the problem is to get a professional bed bug treatment team to eliminate bed bugs before they bite at all.
