bed bugs in marrakech rui tikida gardens

Hi

I am just home after a week in Marrakech. I have very dry skin now and an itchy rash. It seemed to just be on one arm whilst there, but is now over my back and legs and is really itchy. Is there any help anyone can recommend or is it just a case of going to my docs?

Thanks

if you had bedbugs, you would almost certainly have seen them and smelled them. they emit a very distinctive 'almond' odour. and they are not 'microscopic'.

when i encountered them in india, there were huge numbers. and they were very easy to see. indeed, i found several squashed in my book...

they are almost transparent, and turn black after feeding, and look like very mobile seeds.

I am the resident Marrakech bedbug expert here and this doesn't sound like bedbug bites. They look very clearly like you've been 'bitten' , some of mine came out lumpy, red and hot and others went crusty. I know that people have different reactions to them but they will mostly appear the day following the 'bites', but some on my legs came up a few days afterwards.

Pam, I couldn't smell them but I could easily see them and their indestructibility reminded me of mini cockroaches, taking a good few whacks with a hard object before their little legs stopped wriggling.

Happy Christmas!

Bed bugs are common in morocco , but your symptoms don't sound like bed bugs , your s sounds like an allergy .

In 14 years of travelling in Morocco I have never encountered bed bugs (and many of the places I've slept in have not been, as one might say, upmarket). They are NOT common in Morocco.

We are staying at this hotel next month and I must say that the report of bedbugs is completely unfair and looks like unfounded. i will complete a review on my return

The title of this post is not good. Wish it could be removed as there's no evidence to prove!
