About Bed Bugs and the Harm Victims Suffer
Bed bugs are small insects that hide in beds, mattresses, couches, sofas, wooden furniture, and in a variety of other items often found in homes, motels, and hotels. While unsuspecting victims are sleeping, bed bugs come out to feed on blood. Bed bug bites often appear within a few days. Most people believe that the harm caused by bed bugs is limited to bed bug bites. However, bed bug bites can lead to many other complications.
Bed bug bites can be itchy and uncomfortable for most people exposed to bed bugs. Some people develop dangerous allergic reactions to bed bug bites. The itchy bed bug bites can cause discomfort that compel victims to scratch. Scratching bed bug bites can cause breaks in the skin, which could lead to severe skin infections. Bed bug bites could also leave victims with embarrassing scars to remind them of their traumatic experience with bed bugs.
Scars and the entire experience with bed bugs could leave those affected dealing with mental and emotional distress. Bed bug bites could lead to embarrassment, anxiety, fear, depression, panic, and post-traumatic stress. These mental and emotional afflictions could be permanent-or linger for an extended time. The physical, mental, and emotional harm caused by bed bug bites could also prevent victims from going to work and earning wages.
