bedbug bites can be very itchy, leading to the strong urge to scratch it until the itch goes
away. Germs and bacteria can enter the wound and cause an infection if left untreated.

bug bites you, when someone is allergic to their bite, if allergic this could even lead you
to an anaphylactic shock that requires immediate medical attention.
