    um long story short i have a friend who recently got bed bugs and im really freaked out cuz ive had bed bugs at my apartment b4 and i really got traumatized like most ppl do thru the situation but i was wondering if bed bug bites might seem smaller or unnoticable in the early stages of an infestation cuz i know what to keep an eye out for mostly but im not seeing anything that resembles bed bug bites but i feel crawly feelings on my skin mostly when i lay down and even biting at times and itching but no bites i have come across a tiny bump here and there that itches really bad but the bump isnt much bigger than a small pin head in size and rises very little above skin so it seems like there isnt anything there until i run my finger across it ive also wondered maybe im really stressed out and im just imagining it but im not sure and also if i am imagining it what can i do to help the situation ive heard of other ppl freaking out cuz of the thought of an reinfestation after being exposed to bb's b4 and i was wondering if theres any particular things that help ease that stress or is it just gonna take normal old coping with the situation well thats all i have and I really hope someone can answer this for me im really uncomfortable tired and freaked out

    The "bites" you are experiencing... do they stick around or are they somewhat temporary? If temporary, I suspect you are experiencing psychosomatic reactions. They are real reactions that are created by your brain due to stress. I would not hang out with your friend for a while who is facing this problem and try to relax. Drink tea. Do yoga. Try to get a good night's sleep.
