Treated or just you? Declutter entire bedroom/ home.
Place all junk in tightly check this site for instructions: http://treatmentforbedbugs.Com/sealed plastic & dispose of it. Wash clothing, linens, towels in hot water. Dry on highest heat - then repeat. Place clean items in a sealed bag to prevent re-infestation.Steam clean what you can't place in drier. Vacuum everything using a disposable.

bag. Seal bag & dispose of bag. Next, use a STEAM cleaner everywhere (every crack & crevice). Use a non-toxic spray after cleaning or consider using fossil shell dust. You may need to repeat this process more than once. Now with this said- this is a tough job – you might want to consider using an exterminator that specializes in bed bug removal. You can take antihistamines if you feel itchy. Topical steroid creams can be used on lesions. For a severe allergic reaction to bites – please seek medical evaluation and treatment.
