thanks for using Health Care magic .

I would be pleased to answer your question
If you have for rough textured swelling of the bite area , it looks like a papular urticaria which can be caused by beg bites if they are so discretely distributed.
You will need to apply a mixture of steroid and antibiotic on the site of the bite and can take over the counter Allegra 180mg in the morning.

If it does not improve over the next few days , it would be wise to show the dermatologist who will prescribe you certain medication to keep the bed bugs off and also certain creams to review the diagnosis .
thanks and take care
