Bedbug Bites | Merck Manual Consumer Version



Published
Bedbugs are tiny, wingless insects whose bites are usually painless but can cause itchy skin reactions. Bed bug bite marks appear on the skin sometime between a few hours to 10 days after being bitten. Bites that appear in a line usually indicate bedbug bites ("breakfast, lunch, and dinner").
