Bedbugs is a common household infestation that results in itchy, welt-like (hive-like), bumps on the body that are usually grouped together and often appear in a zig-zag pattern. It is not a serious condition and the bugs do not live under the skin, but bite and then jump off, similar to a mosquito.

The American Academy of Dermatology has created a great online resource explaining how to find out if you have bedbugs and how to treat them. Click here to find out about Bed Bugs
