Beware Travelers

There seems to be an increase in the prevalence of bed bugs in lodging accommodations throughout the country. A client who travels frequently for business shared their horror upon discovering they had slept in a bed with bed bugs. This was a decent hotel and my client did not expect to run into this kind of problem in a quality establishment.

How can you tell if that rash is bed bugs? Sudden discovery of puristic lesions on exposed sites after they spent a night in a new setting, establishes the diagnosis. Luckily, bedbugs do not carry any harmful diseases to humans and are mostly thought of as a pest.

Just as an aside: By law, massage therapists are required to launder sheets in hot water with bleach to insure that clients are not exposed to any transmittable diseases or parasites via massage sheets.
