    HI there,
    I don't know if I have bed bugs or not. What I do know however is the first spate of bites was very severe. After a three week break, I am being bitten again but now my reactions are much less severe.
    Ive no history of any kind of biting in the three years ive lived in my home.

    The initial august bites were like 10/10 itchiness and large in size welts
    Now the new bites are very very small and only itch at like 2/10 severity.

    I cant find any research or articles which say whether peoples reaction to bites lessens over time.
    Personal experiences anyone?????

    The timing doesn't make me suspect bed bugs. I would expect feeding to be more frequent.

    I have had a similar experience, however with the new “bites” I have not found one single piece of evidence for a bedbug. So I can’t confirm I’m being Bit by them. The most recent bite I remember that was a confirmed bite was in July, 4 months after the initial infestation. And it was the same size as my original ones.
