The Doctors: Flea Bite Treatments

The Doctors said that puppies attract fleas and when they sleep in the same bed with the owner, the fleas prefer to bite humans over the dog.  If fleas are just in the carpet, then they can only really bite you up to your knee.  However, if your dog has fleas and sleeps in bed with you, then the fleas can bite you just about anywhere on your body.  Flea Bites can be really itchy, but do not itch them because they can get bigger, infected, and even cause scarring.  Instead, cleanse the area with an antibacterial soap.  Apply an ice pack, calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream.  If you have more pigment in your skin, then you can get a brown spot on your skin even after the bug bite goes away.  For this, you can try to use an over-the-counter skin lightening cream.  Also, make sure to vacuum your carpets and under the bed to make sure to get rid of all of the fleas.  And of course, get your dogs to be flea-free.

The Doctors said that anytime anything bites you, you can have a reaction because the bugs release saliva into your skin and your body reacts by releasing histamines, which makes your skin itch.  Do not scratch your skin though or you can get an infection or a permanent scar.  If  you have a Bug Bite, try treating it with Aloe Vera Gel or by making a paste out of baking soda and water.  If a week later your bug bits is changing from itchy to painful, then you should see a doctor because it could be a skin infection.
