A female asked:

I have flea bites on my skin. How can I make them stop itching? And how can I repel the fleas from biting me!?

Over-the-counter med: For flea bites, one can take claritin, zyrtec, or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to block histamine that causes itching. Hydrocortisone 1% cream 2-3 times a day on the bites for about 5 days will help them go away. For more itch relief, one can put an anti-itch gel such as "itch-x" on bites. Itch-x has an anesthetic to numb the itch. If bites are growing or painful, a doctor can evaluate. "deep woods off" repels fleas.

Keratosis pilaris: This is a sign you are irritating or over drying your skin. You may need a prescription but most of my pts with this do better if they use gentler products when bathing and a good moisturizer.
