Bed Bug Bites on Elbow

Picture of bed bug bites on a woman's elbow, submitted by Alicja. She says, "Thank you for very useful information on this site! I got bitten in London last month, during three days in a hotel. It lasted more than two weeks and was very painful.

"On arrival beck home in Rome I went to the IR...couldn't figure out how mosquitoes could bite like this in London. I did pass by a pharmacy there, but they guessed mosquitoes and gave me 'after-bite.' At the IR they could not tell me anything, just gave me antihistamines and antibiotics. So, I went on the internet and found your pictures. So...that was it! Could not believe that 'sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite' would ever become something else than a saying..."

"Upon my complaint to the web site where I booked the hotel, they were very nice...but then when they contacted the hotel...I got back a very incorrect and absolutely ignorant mail regarding knowledge about bed bugs."
