itchy bites due to bedbugs
More patients will complain of itchy bites due to bedbugs.
These human parasites are becoming more common in hotel rooms, dormitories, and households...possibly due to more travel and the use of less toxic insecticides.
During the day, they hide in cracks, upholstered furniture, and mattress seams. In the evenings, they feed on humans by injecting an anticoagulant and anesthetic...and then sucking the blood.
