Flea Bites

While flea bites on people can cause distress, your pets often suffer much more. You may notice your dog or cat scratch frantically and trying to bite the fleas in their fur. 

A flea bite is not particularly painful to people, but you will often be aware as soon as you have been bitten. You may develop some itchiness around the bite though, which could become uncomfortable, depending on your sensitivity.

Fleabites can have several symptoms. They are itchy on the skin. In some cases you can break out in  hives or develop a rash near the bite.

How to Identify Flea Bites

Given their small size, flea bites can often appear as tiny red spots on your skin. As with other insect bites, it is often difficult to identify fleas just by looking at your bites. You should consider other factors, which may help to identify your insect problem.

You should consult a pharmacist for advice and treatment if you develop an itchy rash or eczema. These are common symptoms of an allergic reaction to flea bites. It is recommended to refrain from scratching the area as this can develop into a bacterial infection in the area of the bite. We also advise you to consult your vet if your pet has any signs of irritation such as reddening of the skin or there are any thin patches in your pet’s coat.
