I keep washing my sheets but the bumps are still there. Does that mean that I am allergic to my detergent or do I have bed bugs and they don’t wash out?”

The site advised that the person get the bumps checked out with their primary care physician, and thought that the bumps could be from bed bugs. But if you are in such a situation, you definitely want to also get a bed bug specialist in to check out the situation and see what’s what. It could very well be bed bugs, and the longer you wait, the more they can multiply.
