    I knew of my friend's baby who went through a lot of bed bug bites. All she did was smear lots of cetaphil wherever the bite was and the itching would immediately stop, while the marks did go away in a week or so. The important thing here is to remember not to rub/scratch the bitten area

    Hi Pandu,
    i remember about these while at bangalore,as a shubha said dont scratch it(will lead to scars),the swelling and irritation used to disappear with the medicines i used to get from doc.i am allergic,pretty poisonous to me. i suggest you see the doctor for treatment at early as possible, and regarding the scars,kasturi manjal will help fade it.Go herbal!

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the reply. We had bugs when we were in old apt, in new apartment we do not have this problem.

    There is no irritation on the skin, but small scars are there , i am applying Lactocalmine, it is reducing. As days go it will reduce i guess.

    You can try yet another simple thing- smear sandalwood paste wherever the marks are seen.This seems to have some wonderful effect on even scars from what I have seen.And even if it doesnt make the marks go, atleast sandalwood is good for your skin and does no harm
