What are the symptoms of flea bites?

Dr. Michael Ekizian

Itch: The normal reaction to an insect bite, including fleas, is an inflammatory reaction at the site of the bite, which appears within minutes and consists of itchy local redness and swelling. A delayed reaction involving the same signs and symptoms may follow sometimes.
