Can I get diseases from bed bugs
No, bed bugs cannot give you a disease like AIDS. This is one of
the first things many people become worried about when they get bitten, which
makes sense given how many things you hear you can get from other insects like
mosquitoes. Bed bugs, however, won't transmit anything to you. They often have
diseases inside them, but for whatever reason people don't catch them from a bed
There are a couple of illnesses you can get from being bitten that
you should be aware of:
First of all, the bites can become infected. It's not because the
bed bug gives you anything, but just because it's a regular injury that has that
potential (and it's a bigger risk if you're scratching it).
Second, some people have gotten anemia before in extreme cases
where they are bitten a ton. This isn't going to be likely unless you have bites
all over. Anemia is a blood-disease that can be caused by having too much blood
drawn out of you.
Third, some people are allergic to the bites. A very small
percentage of the population can go into anaphylactic shock from being bitten
because of their allergies. So you have to be aware of that if you start seeing
weird symptoms after being bitten, and go to the doctor if it looks like more
than just a regular, annoying bug bite.
