    So a little over a month ago I realized I had bed bugs. My building sent a PCO out to take a look and said he found a very small infestation, what he felt were the very beginnings of one. He sprayed and thought I should be good after that (and before anyone asks, I did all the regular precautions before he visited, like washing and bagging all my clothes). When the bites first started showing up they would usually be big red welts, very very itchy, typically following the 2-3 in a row pattern.

    After the spraying I hadn't had any more bites, although in the last week and a half I've noticed these super small, barely visible bumps on my skin, that really you wouldn't notice unless you ran your finger across the skin. If they itch, it tends to last 2-10 minutes and then not itch again, but I've noticed a fair number of them.

    My question is, is it possible for bed bug bites to change that drastically after spraying, or am I just being paranoid? (This is a very strong possibility.) Just to be safe, I ordered a passive monitor to see if I can detect anything but I wanted to see what everyone on here thought. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Please see this post:

    Skin reactions can change with time and location of the body and yet do not indicate the cause.

    You are doing the correct thing in terms of monitoring to confirm what is going on. I would also suggest that you read some of my posts on infestation dynamics and how people get bed bugs to make sure that you try to avoid any potential reintroduction, after all it has happened at least once already so its feasible it can continue to happen.

    Hope that helps.
