I'm a 22 old female and live in a city apartment. It only happens at night, but I can't seem to find any bugs!! My husband sleeps right next to me and he is not getting bit. The first time it happened I woke up with an itchy hand, scratched it a little, then I had a burning/tingle sensation got out of bed to see my whole hand was swollen like an Apple. It went away in about three days.Then a few days later I woke with a huge welt on my upper arm little bump like bite in the center, with a raised red line going down to my wrist.. Went to the er and was put on iv they said cellulitis....took antibiotics..nothing happened for say a month...now it's back again..on my upper arm, super itchy hot and inflamed bite..I've had for two days now and it's not getting any better. has anyone else had this problem. Is it a bug? No sign of bed bugs in the house, I have experienced them about 5 years ago at my ex boyfriend house and the bites did not cause the same reaction.
