    I haven't got any new bites for a week. I am very sensitive to the bites so I know for sure that I didn't get any new bite. However, I always have the feeling something crawling my body, even at work where I wear the washed and bagged clothes. I even feel itchy on my head, which never happen to me before, even when I got bitten around my body. This drives me crazy, every time I see some little white thing, I think it's bed bugs' eggs...Any one have the same feeling?
    I think the foam mattress may help a lot if you have bed bugs, they don't seem to live in the mattress itself, so even I don't use the encasement, I haven't got bitten for a week. I will buy a plastic mattress cover in Walmart today, and save the Encasement for my new mattress in my new appartment

    Just because there is a crawling sensation or biting sensation, it doesn't mean that these actions are actually happening, that is, being caused by an insect, arachnid, etc.

    We don't know a lot about bed bug bites.

    Others have reported these sensations. This may be your body's allergic reaction to bed bug bites -- even ones which happened a week ago.
