See below: Most insect which draw a blood meal though a bite will cause a local reaction with redness, swelling, warmth and itch. It is often impossible to tell these apart, but bedbugs will often leave a straight line or repeat bites whereas other bugs like mosquitos, fleas, etc. May look scattered. The should look the same no matter where they are on the body.

It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions w clear center. With hypersensitivity blisters may >>.
