User :   First, let me give some background: I recently moved and bought two couches. I woke up with a bed bug bite and opened them up to find lots of dead ones inside. We disposed of the couches immediately. They only sat in the house for 3 days.
I keep waking up with what looks more like spider bites, one little itchy bump next to a little scab. But I also have bigger ones, and in some spots there will be what looks like 4 little bumps. Is this maybe just infant bed bugs, or maybe just my imagination, or is it spiders? I am very worried...
Doctor :   hi,
Doctor :   Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
User :   okay, thank you.
Doctor :   Are the lesions raised ?
User :   the little scabs aren't raised like the itchy bumps. but a little bit.
Doctor :   ok, Is there redness surrounded the lesions ?
User :   yes.
Doctor :   ok, then i consider the bed bugs being the cause
User :   even if they are not little groupings?
Doctor :   Rarely they are grouped, need not be always
User :   okay, do i need to give this any medical attention?
Doctor :   yes, you hav to take a antiallergic to reduce the inflammation in the already bitten sites
