The thing that helped the itching and sores go away was Equate calamine lotion plus sprays that I purchased from Walmart. I spray twice a day and as needed after showers. I've tried a lot of things for bedbug bites, but I've found this simple thing deals with the bites more than anything else. Hope this is helpful to others.

I had bed bug bites at a friend's home. A few days later, the bites started swelling and itching so bad. Also, I noticed fluid in swellings. I am currently taking Benadryl and I hope it works.

I used Spray and Wash laundry stain remover to spray my place and it seems to work better than bed bug spray I buy.

Cedar oil sold online in gallon form. It works. I used it in two friends' apartments. It's safe for humans and pets, bought it from DIY extermination online.
