Often, the bites heal on their own; however, if they don't because of infection or other reason, you will need medical treatment. If you suffer an allergic reaction or infection because of bed bug bites, be sure to go to your doctor or the emergency room immediately. Some people may suffer from health risks from bed bugs, including:
- Allergic reactions to the bed bugs
- An infection caused by excessive scratching
- Stress and depression due to sleep deprivation
- a weakened immune system if bites are left untreated and latent illnesses because of a weakened immune system.
