What is a bedbug?
First and foremost we need to understand what bedbugs are. Ok, these are small insects that like to feed on blood from human beings. They are found all over the world and tend to live in areas that have been inhabited by human beings. Now that we know their source of living, we then understand why they feed on human blood.

And their treatment or whether they are like mosquito or flea bites.

Parts that are mostly covered by clothes and have much muscle will take a shorter time and vice versa. Generally, they usually take around 5 days to 2 weeks to heal on their own.
If you want the itching of the bedbug bite to go away quickly, then you have to apply anti-itching cream that can be bought over the counter in drug stores or you can alternatively use natural homemade methods that also work quite well.
