Can bed bug bites leave scars on humans? The answer might be yes. A woman is suing a hotel located in Orlando for the permanent scars she has on her legs and torso that she claims were caused by the nasty bed bugs that attacked her at the hotel. She claims the hotel did not prevent “the entrance and the breeding on the premises.” She is seeking a minimum of $15,000 in damages. She needed medical treatment for the bites.
Her lawyer claims the bed bug bites developed infections which created over thirty scars. Bed bug victims might want consult their physician and closely monitor their bite marks for infections.
We often hear about the unattractive red marks, the itching and sometimes emotional trauma. I wonder if unfortunately, other bed bug victims have scars due to bacterial infections and keep quite about it due to the embarrassment. Bed bugs don’t carry disease but scarring is a serious issue.
I feel sorry for the bed bug victims but I also feel sorry for hotel owners who are actually having the property inspected and fumigated, yet they still are vulnerable to bed bugs and lawsuits.
Call a professional bed bug exterminator if you have them in your home.
