You must first address the bedbug infestation or you will be reexposed.
Check mattress enclose in plastic. Check behind beg, drawers etc. Bedbug vites respond to standard cortisone. Reams. A bed gu trap can be made by inserting a wide mouthed thermos filled with dry ice in a short metal pan covered with material on the outside. The co2 attracts bedbugs.

In brief: Exterminator
Getting rid of bed bugs effectively usually requires help from a professional exterminator with experience in bed bug control.
They are very difficult to permanently get rid of on your own. There are bed bug mattress covers now available to help prevent re-infestation. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical Hydrocortisone can help alleviate the intense reaction and hives that these bites can cause.
