Re: Skin Rash

Hi has a professional determined that the rest of the house truly has them?

A dermatologist can help a person be sure it is not something else.

Exactly what things have been done to eliminate the bed bugs?

Re: Skin Rash

Hi bedbugs are becoming a problem to several cities and the problem seems to be growing, one might do all the research possible on this problem. Some wealthy people have paid professionals without results according to reading so the more learning done the better. Some people say nothing works, others encase their mattresses in plastic, put sticky tape on zippers, put vaseline on bed legs and they try olive oil for the body and hair (not recommended long term since the body needs to breathe and let out waste through the skin).

Some people use salt and baking soda or boric acid swept out on the floor and left there a couple weeks or so and vacuumed up and redone later. Steam vacuuming seem to help some especially on all beds and the furniture and cracks in it and under beds and furniture, basically everywhere.

The bugs can live anywhere and may eat plants, wood as well as human blood. They may travel long distances and live a long time without food. Cracks in walls, floors, ceilings may need sealing. Some people use things like hot pepper tea as a spray or wash and others use thyme oil or lemon peel tea. (of course one will need to consider the effect on furniture and everyone makes their own choices in life) Some people wash clothes in hot water and borax with salt. Some people try to relocate without results because they go with the people. They recommend not getting rid of mattresses it often merely moves the bugs to more people. I have a long list of things others try but I have put some of the more natural and hopefully cheaper measures here. If more of it is desireable let me know. The bugs can be the size of an apple seed as adults or nearly invisible as babies. The mattresses may have blood stains on the bottom of it or somewhere in the cracks.

Perhaps a person can try thyme tea drinking every few hours and use a little in the food. I would be interested to know what is tried and if it works.
