Bed bug bites may : Cause no sx's or signs in some except for 2 small points where skin was punctured by bedbug. When there is a reaction, it may not show for everal days after bed bug has bitten. It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions which with clear center. In cases of hypersensitivity blisters may develop. A telltale sign is a linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – but that doesn't always occur.
