In most cases where humans get sick after bedbug bites, the underlying cause was due to allergies, blood loss or infection. We'll discuss it further in a section below. Many people don't feel the bite itself or develop clear symptoms other than the spots where the insect stung and some minor inflammation and irritation surrounding it.
