Bed Bug Bites Can Be Dangerous
Researchers know that bed bugs do have the ability to carry and transmit disease. According to this bed bug research article presented in Clinical Microbiology Reviews, “if bed bugs are numerous, the patient can present with widespread urticaria or erythematous rashes. Often, bites occur in lines along the limbs. Over 40 pathogens have been detected in bed bugs, but there is no definitive evidence that they transmit any disease-causing organisms to humans. Anemia may result when bed bugs are numerous, and their allergens can trigger asthmatic reactions.”
According to the Texas Department of State Health Services bed bug information page, “…many people have mild to severe allergic reactions to the bites. Bed bug bite marks usually appear on the face, neck, arms, hands, but can appear on other body parts. The marks are slightly swollen, red areas that can itch or be irritating.”
If you suspect you have been bitten by bed bugs, you can check for bed bugs beginning with the places where they most often live and hide – around mattresses, furniture, and other narrow, damp, dark spaces and crevices.

What Types of Health Problems
Bed bugs can Cause...
A bed bug sheds the outer layer of its body as it matures. This is called a casing and the casing, along with bed bug feces, can dry out and become airborne. If you have asthma or any respiratory ailment, bed bug infestations can aggravate your condition.
Bed bug bites alone do not cause infection, however infections usually result because scratching at bedbug bites can cause openings or breaks in the skin. Bacteria can enter through these breaks and begin to multiply, leading to infection and even post-secondary infections.
“Texas has seen bed bug infestations in many types of businesses.”
