    Thanks. We found 2. I had a sleepless night, around 2 am i found one on the bed.. lil bugger! Im not finding the lil dark spots on the mattress which i guess means we dont have it that bad. Im hoping the exterminator comes in and get this taken care of asap before it gets out of control. We have had alot of guests lately so maybe thats where it came from...

    • Just curious, how has this gone? I was notified today one of my tenants has them. Has had for a couple months, she just figured out that she's being bitten while sleeping. This is really not fun to deal with. Blah. They say it's going to get worse but I'm not going to put that into my expectations for the future.

        The exterminator did the last treatment of spraying yesterday. I didnt notice any bites this past week but we have been getting a few the weeks before. Hopefully its gone. Time will tell.

        • Did they treat inside the walls? Those little nasties can hibernate for a year although they say if you go 120 days w/o any signs of them you are good. A tenant who dealt with this earlier in the year seems to be free of them.

          • Try honey based products as long as you are not allergic to honey. They calm the skin and reduce inflammation. Raw honey is best. Have you heard of Bee yummy skin food? It works for me.

            • I have been waking up with huge, red, itchy bumps on all different parts of my body for the last couple months. They itch and burn and swell for about 3 or four days. Then, they just turn into these small little bumps on my skin. I get them on my legs, arms, and face so far. I have no idea what they are, but it really worries me.

              • Massage the face with almond oil or olive oil every night before going to bed. The oils can also be used to massage the other parts of the body. This is a good remedy for rough skin.

                • Do the bumps leave black marks? If so then I have the same thing! Do you get any near your inner thighs? I get some there and the doctor said it was genital warts or ingrown hairs. But I went in 2007!! I need to go back and get checked again! I'm freaking out!! You should go to the doctor too just to make sure! Also if anyone can help me in this or the other post I made! Appreciate it!

                  • You can try some home remedies like rubbing the paste of baking soda on your bumps, applying milk, coconut oil, honey on it, it will provide you relief from your itchiness.
