Vitamins are always great for the body, and vitamin K has special healing powers for the skin especially. Vitamin K comes in capsules, cream, and is naturally available in green leafy veggies. The cream form is the best for treating bed bug bites. It is typically found in beauty stores because the skin nourishment elements that prevent scarring are also great for reducing wrinkles.

This is one of the most relaxing ways to stop scarring. By massaging the scarred area, the skin pigmentation is evened, which reduces the appearance of scars. We recommend scheduling a massage at a nearby spa, or giving yourself a DIY massage. Don’t forget to use essential massage oils, such as olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil, to make the massage more pleasant and give the scars more nutrients to expedite healing.
Visit a Dermatologist
If the bed bugs decided to feast on your face, neck, or other sensitive area of skin, it may be worth a visit to your local dermatologist. If the scarring is very bad, you may want to consider laser therapy for scar removal.
