Last month I was bitten by some bed bugs. After pest control, they have been eradicated from the house. But my skin is very itchy and there are white and red spots on the full body. Can you suggest me some medicine or ointment, so the redness and itchiness fades?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
This type of rash is seen not because of bed bugs but maybe you are allergic to something coming in contact. It may be so many things like your clothes, bedding or plants or some food items. For now, apply Hydrocortisone cream at day time and calamine lotion at night along with D-Loratin (Desloratadine) 5 mg once daily before sleep (if pregnant or lactating, avoid tablets). I am not sure about your age and sex as this information is not available.
Desloratadine 5 mg once at night, Hydrocortisone cream 1 % once in morning and Calamine lotion at night.
