Medical treatment is usually not needed for bedbug bites. If required, medical treatment is aimed at relieving the symptoms caused by bedbug bites. In the rare cases of a systemic allergic reaction or a secondary skin infection, evaluation by a health-care provider may be necessary. Individuals may also want to seek medical care if they are unsure of what is causing their skin lesions.
