Can bed bug bites be mistaken for pimples or acne?

Bed bug bites can be the hardest marks to distinguish. It is because they look so similar to other insects that poke and suck the blood out of us such as mosquitoes. The main issue is that bed bug bites may not even be discovered until much later after it happened. This is because, when bed bugs pierce the skin, they insert a sort of anesthesia under the skin making the whole feeding process go virtually unnoticed. You may find marks, raised bumps, and irritation when you scratch these places. Usually, bed bug bites can be found on uncovered skin. Most of the areas are arms, hands, stomach, and face. They can be mildly irritating to feeling nothing at all. Often bed bug bites, as mentioned before, are often mistaken for mosquito bites and can be very hard to distinguish, or even impossible. The best way to find out whether you have been bitten by a bed bug is to look for traces of its presence. This can include brown to black soiling on between or the sides of the mattress, finding eggs, streaks of brown to black marks, and can even release a musty odor in very bad cases. Both of which are hard to do without proper training or patience.
