Bed bug bites often occur in a unique bite pattern of a linear group of three or four, sometimes referred to as a “breakfast, lunch, dinner” pattern. Bedbug bites can occur singly but are often in this straight line pattern.
Initially the bite site is mildly red and upon close inspection may reveal fang marks. Most commonly, the bite site will become firm and heal with little scaring over the next few days or weeks. Occasionally, the local reaction will be more severe with erythema and blistering, sometimes leading to a blue discoloration, and ultimately leading to a necrotic lesion and scarring. Signs that may be present include:
necrosis (death) of skin and subcutaneous fat (less common), and
severe destructive necrotic lesions with deep wide borders (rare).

If the man is diabetic (I don't think I saw anyone mention this) the wounds wouldn't heal very well either.
That is kind of what the bites remind me of,
a diabetic sore.
