can bed bug bites look like ingrown hairs?

Bed bug bites may : Cause no sxs or signs. When there is a reaction, it may not show until several days after the bed bug has bitten. It can cause pink, swollen, itchy skin lesions. What can be telltale is when there is a linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – but that does not always occur.
