Can someone have Allergies from bedbugs?

This is Dr. David

bed bug bites can be very painful, itchy and can cause red bumps on the skin very much like an allergy.

bed bug bites can even become infected as well.

you have to get rid of bed bugs completely from your bed and home for them to stop biting you and causing skin rashes and bites.

it is not easy getting rid of all bed bugs.

why do you think you have allergies to bed bugs?

have you had your mattress and bed checked for bed bugs?
