On the Surface
Because they bite and draw blood, bedbugs can leave red, itchy bite marks on your skin. They are not known to spread disease like mosquitoes or ticks, but you are at an increased risk of a secondary infection from scratching the welts.
A Bigger Reaction
People who suffer from allergies or asthma may have more serious reactions to bedbugs. From asthma attacks to anaphylactic shock, patients have had to seek immediate medical treatment due to allergens from bedbugs.
If you’ve ever dealt with bedbugs, you have probably had trouble sleeping. People who are in the middle of a bedbug problem can develop insomnia, anxiety, and depression due to a lack of sleep and stress.
