When you go and visit somewhere, you may decide to spend the night. In that case, you expect to have a clean bed to sleep in. Therefore, it can be a rude awakening if you wake up in the morning with a bunch of red spots all over your body. You might also be incredibly itchy, and you may have even developed a rash.
What is the cause of all of this? There are multiple reasons why you might have small bumps on your body, but one of the most common causes is bed bugs. What exactly are bed bugs, and what do you need to do to get rid of them? Take a look at a few important points below.
So, what exactly are bed bugs? They are small, oval, brown insects that tend to live in dark, moist, warm areas. To survive, they need to feed on the blood of animals (including humans). Because they are so small, it is very easy for them to be overlooked. Sometimes, the only sign of bed bugs is a lot of itching and scratching on your body. The sooner you can identify bed bugs, the faster you can get rid of them. If you do not do something about the bed bugs, the problem can get worse, and it is possible for some of the bed bug bites to get infected.
