Do you have any suggestions on stopping the itching/burning?

My husband and I feel we have bed bugs but we are currently working on getting a new bed. But everyday I itch and burn, it hurts so bad I'm always uncomfortable. This is so embarrassing that I dont know what to do, I feel if I go to the Dr and tell them I feel I might have them then I'll look like a bad parent bc I have a 3 yr at home. I itch so bad sometimes I bleed.. I need some suggestions on what to try? This has been an ongoing situation for 2+ months now and I usually dont reach out like this but I'm needing suggestions bc this is getting out of control. Thank you in advance

Take benadryl and/or zyrtec at night, until you get them taken care of.  You are probably allergic to their saliva.
