Hi Elsie,

Welcome to Healthcare magic forum,

Bed bugs will cause only urticaria means allergic reaction in the skin, it wont cause any disease, running nose is not the effect of bedbugs, it may be common cold, better to clear the bed bugs from ur sons crib so that it may not cause him irritation.

Hope I have answered ur question.
