If your child has a bite and is really bothered by it/itching it- or it looks infected - see a doctor. If you have an animal that could have fleas - get the animal treated. DO NOT BE EMBARASSED. Doctors see everything. We do not judge. We see lice and scabies and many things. We want to help.

People get flea bites usually from infected animals like pets who acquire them from outdoors. And the fleas can colonize a apparently clean home. For flea bites, use Benadryl, hydrocortisone cream, clean wound thoroughly and watch for signs of infection.

Saw pictures of flea bites on humans and fleas but live in nice home. What could I have?

See below

Still could be fleas but most insect bites look similar. All insect bites can cause a local reaction with redness, swelling, warmth and itch. If you have pets, check them.

Do flea bites spread?

Depends

Flea_bites
Flea bites result in red spots surrounded by reddened haloes. They are extremely itchy and cause great discomfort. Fleas often target the legs and feet of human victims and may infest the entire bodies of domestic house pets.Treating flea bites merely addresses one symptom of an infestation. Extermination methods should be conducted in conjunction with bite treatment to keep from spreading.

Dr. Keith Ramsey answered:

I have very bad flea bites?

Flea bites

If you are allergic to the bites, then they will itch for weeks. If you scratch them, they will itch until you quit scratching them. They can cause hard bumps called nodules if you continue to rub or scratch. Also, are the fleas still around? Other bites can look like flea bites and last a long time, such as scabies and other mites. Hydrocortisone cream and oral benadryl will help the itch.
