Bed bug bites can be serious personal injuries. Bed bugs can harbor several different types of serious diseases. This is a major problem, which can cause complications as you are trying to heal from a bed bug bite from staying at an infested hotel or apartment. The common bed bug is called
, and they are on the rise everywhere across the country in hotels, inns, resorts and spas, as well as in apartment buildings and dwellings. A bed bug creates a lot of feces, which can contain histamine that once it bites you on your body, can create several different types of skin infections.
Bed Bug Bites Can Cause Serious Respiratory Issues for Someone Bitten by These Nasty Insects
A bed bug is a small reddish-brown insect, that can cause you to have serious and even life-threatening breathing problems. One bed bug can bite you several times in a night, if you are unlucky enough to be sleeping in a hotel or apartment infested with bed bugs. A bed bug can cause respiratory issues such as:
- Histamine releasing agents into the body
- Throat swelling responses
- Increase of mucus secretions
- Increase of endothelial permeability
- Sinus congestion
- Triggering of asthma attacks
Bed bugs can only live and thrive if they get a blood meal from a human host or animal host. In that case, a bed bug can start to multiply and lay eggs, whereby the bed bug infestation can grow quickly. Bed bugs also learn how to migrate to other areas in a dwelling, and will move from one room to another on clothing, personal items, on shoes, furniture, by crawling in the walls or on the rugs, water pipes, or even through a gutter.
