    Hi,

    I stayed in a hostel in New Orleans, which is where I got the bites (last Wed). Now it's been a week and bites have continued to appear, and some have become much larger and more raised. Is this due to scratching? I've been scratching them quite a bit.

    Also, I washed everything and don't think I brought the bugs with me (I think more bites from before are showing up), but is there anyway to know?

    Thanks

    Personally for me the more I scratch the more swollen and itchier they will become. Try not to scratch and maybe put Benadryl anti itch gel, which works for me.

    As for your clothes, make sure the dryer you used gets above 120 degrees and you should be fine. Inspect your shoes thoroughly... I've found these little buggers in my sneakers

    Best,

    JR
