Bedbeg bites some swollen and warm? Others turning dark parple

I have quite a few bites from bed bugs (cleared the infestation now thank goodness), they dont itch anymore as I have been taking anti-histamines and applying hydrocortisone.

But quite a few on my leg have turned dark purple, almost like a bruise colour, they arent swollen/bulged at all, seems to have flattened but the colour worries me.

While on my hand, two bites (one on each) have become extremely swollen and warm on touch. Not much change regarding colour, just the skin around the bite that has swelled up became the same pink.

Should I worry about this?? I dont have any pain even while touching any of the bites.
