    Hey all.. if you're here I'm sorry! I had bed bugs about a year and a half ago and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. That said if you have questions I'm a good person to ask,

    Anyway as I said I had these hateful things almost, if not, 2 years ago. I have the one spot on my hand that I specifically remember waking up and seeing as a bite and yes, scratching it. The thing is the bugs are gone, we have in fact even moved, but it still likes to flare up like once or twice a month and itch like mad. It gets red and raised a bit, you can feel it if you touch it.

    Anyone have any experience with this?? It's like the bugger bit me and released time released poison! >.< LOL

    You can ask a dr. but it's an allergic reaction. Something else environmental may trigger it. I'm not an expert, but I've heard of this. Experts will be on in the morning. Good night.

    I am also having problems of a similar nature after my bug issue was resolved 7 months ago. The problem i have is the old adage "You buy cheap, you get cheap" applies to doctors as well, and my shitty insurance plan doesn't pay for specialists like a dermatologist who would be much better at properly diagnosing these issues. Same with the shrinks, my insurance only pays for quacks!

    .....I am NOT an expert.....

    Any advice i give here is based solely on my own personal experiences in dealing with bedbugs & other household vermin.

    Thanks guys...

    It doesn't bother me that much other than that it shouldn't be there and I don't know why it is and THAT bothers me, if you know what I mean!

    I can see if my pcp will refer me to a dermatologist but I don't know if my insurance will cover that either. In any case, any idea what can be done???

    basically, that's my life story, well kinda

    way long after my bed bugs where gone, I kept responding, and I was responding to the point I was certain that I had them still!

    it's a weird phenomenon but it does happen, it's all over the forum, it's not rare

    it's like the BB infestation you had in the past is making your skin way sensitive, what helps me is Aveeno baths

    It's still a good idea to have a doctor check it out. Skin reactions can be other things, but Endless is correct. There are a lot of stories about this on this site.

    Well thank you guys, at least I know it's "normal". I probably won't even worry about it, I KNOW it was a bb bite I remember waking up and noticing it. And pretty sure there isn't much that can be done. Since it doesn't bother me often, I'll just live with it. Thanks All.
