No, if this is : Likely an allergic rxn. See dr. Bites may cause no sx's/signs except for 2 small points where skin was punctured. When there's a reaction, it may show from an hour to several days after bite. It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions w clear center. In cases of hypersensitivity blisters may develop. A telltale sign is linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – but doesn't always occur.

Bites are usually in areas that are exposed while sleeping-arms, shoulders,neck & legs. Don't pop blisters to avoid scarring and infection.
