IN SHORT: i have had bedbugs in my room on holiday. I had really strong reactions to the bites (bloody bubles and really big swellings) and I’m wondering after how many weeks at home I should habe numerous bites. Meaning: did I not bring them home? I’m wondering if the reactions should be as strong even if it is only a few bugs and they are young.
MORE IN DETAIL: We followed all advices in order to not bring them into the home.
I had a clear row of bites 6 days after my return which was 10 days after the encounter, so I was assuming it might be a late reaction to the initial attack. then I had two bites in a row when I stayed at my boyfriends who was on the trip with me. (so they could be from my place, his place or from the mosquito which was in the room). this was 3 weeks after our return. Eversince I havnt had any obvious bites and I am back for 5 weeks now.
I still still extremely paranoid and I would like to know if I can by now assume that I havnt brought them. Do I still need to worry or should I by now be covered in bubbles? btw my boyfriend never felt any bites so he wouldnt know if he has them.
Thanks a lot to anyone who is willing to give advice!
