I have been getting a lot of itching bites, mainly on my legs but also on my back tummy, and arms. The bites usually accure at night.
I have tried everything, seen 3 doctors, and they all think insect bite. So I have done everthing i can think of to stop the insects biting me
-steam cleaned,washed and sprayed matress, pillows, all bed linen even the curtens, anything where biting bugs could hide.
- I wear long pants and long sleeve tops and socks
I do work outside, and down at the beach. I have horses, and a cat.
The bites started about 2 months ago in jan, i live on the central coast NSW Aust.
and the bites are only getting worse!!!!
I'm running out of ideas on what to do, and was wondering if they are accually bite or is there something else that could be causeing small itching, swollen lumps, as soon as i scratch a small amount of skin comes of, i am on anti biotics for the infection, they will stay itchy for a long time..
Has anyone replied? I have a similar situation / Gulf Coast of Florida. VERY itchy bites popping up here and there on my body-not much sign of a bump until a few hours have passed and then barely visible. I have thoroughly cleaned bedding and done all else I can think of. No sign of flying or crawling insect. Nothing felt on skin until intense itching commences. I hope someone has some ideas.
BedBugs. Very difficult to get rid of and usually requires a licenced pest controller to eradicate completely. Bedbugs generally arrive in the home in someones luggage that has travelled outside the country or has stayed in hostels. Whilst you are doing the right things you also need to wash all your clothes in hot water and leave in the sun. Anything not able to be washed should be left out in the sun in a black plastic bag. They need to be in the sun for a minimum of 4 hours. If you can get the mattress outside for that amount of time as well, all the better. Every inch of your room needs to be sprayed, bedbugs will find each and every crack and crevice they can. Good luck, you might find it easier to employ a experienced pest controller.
