    first off I know that everyone reacts differently to insect bites but i have a theoretical question.

    at some moment at my desk at work I noticed 3 small bumps that were itching but after a few minutes they stopped itching but the bumps are still there it's been 24 hours and it still does not itch but the bumps are still there.

    would insect bites behave this way or could this just be some skin reaction i came into contact with

    also second question if one reacts instantly to mosquito bites would the same be true for bed bug bites ?

    Hi,

    Q1 insects bites can behave that way with some people and not with others. They can also react that way one week and differently another.

    Q2 no, there is no correlation between different species.

    I would suggest you work through the bite primer which covers this sort of question in more detail.

    Hope that helps.

    No. Different salivary components. I react to mosquito bites, but not really to bed bug bites.
