i had been experiencing formication (the feeling of bugs crawling on your skin) and i thought it was just because of the bed bugs in the house, but than i noticed i was feeling this all day long even when i had been away for a few days and felt fine when i came back, just minutes after stepping in the house not even sitting down yet i had been feeling it again.
i researched and everywhere says that bed bugs dont stay on your body once they are done feeding and also they wouldnt be biting 24/7 as they dont really need to feed often.
so i found out the cause for this is that bed bugs release histamine from their bodies that stays around even after they are gone. in houses with bed bugs the histamine levels are 20 times higher than those without (even when tested 3 months after successful extermination). an excess of histamine can cause various symptoms and formication can be one of them.
so i also found out that the treatment for formication is antihistamines, but other things like a few specific vitamins can help with histamine intolerance and making it easier for the body to break down histamine.
so im going to take vitamins for a while i know which ones to take and i will see if it helps, i drank a supplement drink this morning with 1000 mg of vitamin c which is one of the main ones that helps so i will see if it does anything
