Do I have bed bug bites? I have two bites, one on each of the insides of each knee. I've scratched them so much they've gotten inflamed.

In brief: Bed bugs

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