bites nose(12 posts)
Has anyone ever had nose bleeds and thought that the little bastards maybe the nymphs were the cause?
My best to all.
Try to have a good weekend.
Also, if you sleep with your mouth open and find you've gotten an unexplainable inflammation on the front of your gum during the night, it could be from a bedbug bite, too. (It happened to me. Gross! But the blood meal there was easily accessible I guess).
Let's just say I was bitten in a much worse, more PRIVATE place, so beware!
omg - i heard and hoped that they never went where hair was. do not do a brazilian during an infestation!
Yes, I too once had bites on my private place before I knew we had the infestation.
One morning I woke snoring and I am pretty confident that I had swolled one.
So, how many people experienced nose bleeds. I would suspect that it would be a good area for the nymphs, nice and tender.
If I were a nymph that is where I would go. Could run the risk of being sucked in. I guess I would take that chance it is better than risking the possibilities of being squashed.
One Entomologist told me that the bugs would not like it because that area is too moist. I do not know how she came up with that information, I should of asked her.
I've kind of wondered myself if they'd go in hair (on my head!). I do recall reading in the past that while they may pass through there, they don't want to be there because it can be hard for them to manuver. I have long hair, so it's just one more thing for me to be paranoid over, especially since my head itches more than it used to...
No nosebleeds on me.
Supposedly they do not like head hair. Not sure about pubic hair. Ha! But they prefer to get to places that are easy to eat.
Good! Then hopefully having long hair in this case is to my benefit.
T.M. I. !!!! Ha ha ha.... re: other hair. BUT LONG HAIR ON THE HEAD should not be bitten through.
I have avoided this thread long enough--I doubt they would bite the nose entrance because of fear of being sucked in and the moisture. Just a guess--But I have had no nose bleeds. (Iâ€™m thinking they would interpret the influx/outflow of air as a distraction.)
Did notice that my lips were dryer when I was using the DE--feet too, but it passed. I've seen and heard of people with bites on the face--it is usually around the cheekbone or the chin and the neck--as far as I recall, but one person said they got bit on the gum!
So â€¦ you never know!
I definetly have had bites on the back of my head and my hair is long I once also found one tangled in my dogs hair, my guess is that it was a fourth instar nymph.
Also my dogs belly had many bites and although the hair on her belly is not as thick as the rest she still has a good amount of hair on her belly, she also got bites between her toes.
My hands and my wife's hands and feet dried out much from the DE.
