Do bed bugs cause health problems?
We’ve known that bed bug bites themselves do not cause illness or spread disease, despite being an absolute nuisance and often very uncomfortable. Recently, however, there was a news story that brought up a few questions about the effects of bed bug bites on individuals that need care or cannot treat the bites on their own.
How can bed bugs affect your health?
There are two common ways that bed bugs can affect a person’s health, neither of which are pleasant. Here’s the breakdown:
Bed bug bites, like most insect bites, can cause irritation and depend on an individual’s sensitivity, which could vary in intensity.
Infections on the areas where bed bugs have bitten are typically caused by frequent scratching which can leave the area vulnerable to germs. If left untreated, complications can occur, though typically are not severe. We recommend using a natural topical bite relief that can help soothe the itch as the bites heal.
Aside from irritated and itchy bites, one of the biggest health concerns is the stress associated with bed bug infestations. The nocturnal nature of these insects can cause many restless nights and elevate stress levels, both of which can create problems, both physically and emotionally.
How can health be protected from bed bugs?
If you believe you or your home have been exposed to bed bugs, or you spot one - taking immediate action can and will save you many headaches later on.
