How can I prevent bed bug or flea bites?

Be aware of how you

Extremity-palm
can pick them up. Cimex lectularius or the bed bug is a parasite that is nocturnal. It can be transported on your clothing, luggage, second hand furniture etc. You can even get it using public transportation. It can go up to a year without feeding, so that allows it to just sit and wait until it catches a ride on something or someone. If you live in an apartment complex it may move from one unit

what is the difference between flea bites and bed bug bites?

Location

Flea_bites
Location, location, location. Flea bites will occur close to ground, so for most of us that's legs only. Bed bugs anywhere on the body. Both produce itchy red bumps.

I was getting bitten repeatedly but no one else was bitten that has come over for hours and i am not sure if bed bugs or flea?

If your friends were

Blood
over during the day - they wouldn't be bitten. Bed bugs hides in crevices during the day. At night they are attracted to the carbon dioxide that humans exhale as well the warmth emitted by our bodies. They come out to feed on our blood.

I get itchy bumps that look like bites but have no bed bugs/fleas. Get them anywhwere/any time. Stopped for a week or two, now getting again.

Hives

Bed_bugs
Although it is hard to tell without seeing the rash, you may have hives. They should resolve on their own and may respond to an over the counter antihistamine such as Allegra or Zyrtec. If they persist, cpnsult an allergist.

I have tiny red bumps on my legs. It's not bed bugs or fleas. What are they?

Keratosis Pilaris

Bed_bugs
I assume they are at the thigh area. If they are, most likely benign bumps called Keratosis Pilaris. The bumps can be smoothed out by lotions that contain acids such as AmLactin (OTC). If the bumps are lower, they could be bites, razor burn, folliculitis, fungus, etc. Touch to say without photo.
