Often when people suffer from bites they are not sure what they are being bitten by and search Google for pictures and advice on bed bug bites.

Not everyone that is bitten by a bed bug will have a reaction. Some others will have a very bad reaction to bed bug bites.

As bed bugs are nocturnal creatures they are feeding when you are asleep. Made aware of your presence by body odours and carbon dioxide that we as humans exhale. Bed bugs then emerge to feed. Typically a bed bug will feed for between 5 to 6 minutes and then return to their nesting areas.

In the morning you awake either aware of the bed bug bites or unaware. 

Bed bugs do not transmit disease themselves but there is a risk of infection from scratching the bed bug bites which itch,

Bites can appear as spots, usually in a track or triangle shape. A reaction can sometimes take up to 15 hours to appear and this can sometimes be cause of confusion as to the cause as people would expect to wake up and be aware of the bites immediately and it can also make a GP's task of identifying the bites more difficult.

I have seen extreme reactions to bed bug bites too, like large rashes, inflammation and discomfort. People react differently to bed bug bites.
