    Bites appear is the exact same spots where I got bed bug bites before. This often happens after I exercise. Is it possible that old bites "reappear" due to my body heat or are these new bites? I'm positive the bites are in the same spots as before because I have hyperpigmentation (skin darkens where I get bitten).

    Hi,

    Yes, as you body gets overheated the immune system kicks back in and old bites can and will sometimes flare up again. It can also happen if you are exposed to high levels of environmental pollution.

    Hope that clarifies.

    Are you referring to sprays and dust as "environmental pollution"?

    When exactly will this flaring stop? I got the bites this summer and 6 months later, it still flares up whenever I exercise. Is this something that will go away on its own?

    I think it was Lou who quoted a period of 9 months, but I could be spastically remembering it wrong.

    My experience was I moved out in October 2011 and had reactions until April/May of this year.

    Wow - this is crazy. I like to stay active - should I be avoiding heavy workouts right now?

    Were these questions ever answered? I moved out at the end of March and have seen no signs of the little bastards since, aside from bite marks on my right hand that keep flaring up in the exact same spot.

    Hi,

    Sorry missed it.

    I specifically mean environmental pollutants like car exhaust or that aviation fuel smell you always get at an airport. I have also seen cases where factory environments and shoe shops have produced strong reactions to occur or reoccur.

    It is not to say that this will always happen, it is to report that it can happen. If you find that after exercising or using the hot tub or sauna old bites reappear it may be that you want to moderate such activities for a while or go extra heavy with the moisturizer.

    I have recently found that after sun treatment with lots of aloe vera and a mild local anesthetic (OTC type products) work exceptionally well for intense bedbug bites. Yes I use my weekly feeding sessions for experimentation and as long as your proceed with caution and seek appropriate medical advice I see no reason why something that works on 500+ bites in a 2 inch circle will not help others with less severe bites. I am however not a Doctor and can not give medical advice.

    As for when someones reaction will return to normal we just don't have enough data to be able to comment accurately. Therefore any input you can give is likely to be the best out there so don't forget to come back and update this at some stage.

    David
