Unseen Biting Bugs

When you have an itch, you scratch it…and you look for a likely cause. Perhaps it’s poison ivy, maybe it’s an ant bite or maybe it’s one of those unexplainable “it just itches” kind of things.

On the other hand, if you have a sharp pain and an itch, you immediately blame it on an insect.

But what if you can’t see the creature….and you continue to feel the pain of “bites”?

Unexplained and unseen “biting bugs” are tremendously frustrating for a person, their family and their medical professional.

I have put together a short publication on known biting creatures and on possible other causes for unexplained bites.

This publication also offers explanations for feelings of being bitten:
