what happen if a bed bug bite you ?

if a bed bug bits you nothing will happen to you

In most observed cases a small, hard, swollen, white welt may develop at the site of each bedbug bite. This is often surrounded by a slightly raised red bump and is usually accompanied by severe itching that lasts for several hours to days. Welts do not have a red spot in the center such as is characteristic of flea bites. In other cases, it is observed that welts first appear upon the incessant scratching that is triggered by the bite, and seem like a mosquito bite that increases in size upon scratching. Later, however, the welts subside but tend not to disappear like those from mosquitos, and persist for up to several weeks. This usually depends on the person's skin type, environment and the species of bug.

Some individuals respond to bed bug infestations and their bites with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Individuals may also get skin infections and scars from scratching the bedbug bite locations.

Most patients who are placed on systemic corticosteroids to treat the itching and burning often associated with bed bug bites find that the lesions are poorly responsive to this method of treatment. Antihistamines have been found to reduce itching in some cases, but they do not affect the appearance and duration of the lesions. Topical corticosteroids, such as hydrocortisone, have been reported to expediently resolve the lesions and decrease the associated itching

"Bed bug bites look like little red bumps and often occur in a unique bite pattern of a linear group of three, sometimes referred to as a "breakfast, lunch, dinner" pattern. Bedbug bites are often in this pattern, but can also occur singly.

The effect of these bites on humans varies from person to person, but typical symptoms are welts and swelling that are more itchy and longer-lasting than mosquito bites. Some people, however, have little or no reaction. "
