Try anti-histaminic: You may try an anti-histaminic like Benadryl (diphenhydramine). Take the medication only at bed time.

See Your Doctor: Bedbug bites can cause a number of skin reactions including allergic eruptions, blisters & more. Hypersensitivity can develop leading to persistent itchy rash. Additionally, secondary skin infection can ensue & they are a public health concern due to disease transmission (ex. Hepatitis B). Skin complications are treatable. Visual inspection is needed. See doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment.
