Fleas In Cats Ears
I have a non-itchy rash on my earlobe, nowhere else. My cats recently got fleas, could that have caused it? If not, then what?
Swimmers ear: It is possible to get flea bites but they are usually itchy. If you have been swimming lately, you may have an otitis external or swimmers ear. Make sure you dry your ear well after a shower, bath, or swimming. If is painful, red, or has a discharge see a doctor. You may need antibiotics and some ear drops for the discomfort. ...Read more
I have a non-itchy rash just on my earlobe, nowhere else. Our cats did bring in an infestation of fleas, could that have caused it? If not, then what?
Good question: Chloe, fleas generally like fur so unlikely they would be too interested in your ear! However, any insect that gets in an ear can be uncomfortable. Try shining a flashlight on the outside because some insects will come to the light. If this doesn't work, use either peroxide or oil to drown and drain it out. Sometimes a muscle twitching in an ear feels like a bug. It will go away. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mineral oil: If you do not have a hole or tube in the drum you can suffocate the bug with mineral oil.Lay down on your unaffected ear and have someone fill the outer ear canal with mineral oil. Similar products can also be used. Let it sit for a while and then change position, letting the oil drain out.The flea may or may not be dead but it should flow out. ...Read more

Ready for bed and my cat was laying on me, I was itching g his neck and a flea jumped off him to my face into my ear. how do I get it out?
Insect in ear: First thing to do is smother it so it stops moving. An oily ear drop, vegetable oil or even mineral oil to fill the ear canal will work. Press on outer ear to remove air bubble. Cover with cotten plug. In 30 min gently irrigate with warm water and bulb syringe. Do NOT use alcohol, peroxide or any other toxic substance. ...Read more

10 month old daughter has few petechiae on neck for a few days, she is well. Today my 3 year old boy has a few petechiae on his ear. Cat fleas?
Petechiae?: Petechiae are a very particular kind of red spot that does not blanch with pressure and usually is not raised. It can be a sign of serious disease. However they are also common (above the nipple line) in kids just from things like coughing or breath-holding. Flea bites are normally raised, do blanch with pressure, and itch. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, it's possible: Public lice (crabs) have their favorite spots, and their less-favorite places. They prefer pubic hair, armpit hair, beards, moustaches, and eyebrows... over scalp hair. However, they can grab onto scalp and be found there. If the eggs are very white, and "bugs" are on the scalp, those are likely head lice. The treatment is the same type of medication (such as Nix). ...Read more

There are little tiny bugs in my hair. Not lice or nits or fleas but they look almost like little flies. If I itch my head ( dandruff ) I find them.
Hard to say: These could be bedbugs, by your brief description, but only a visit to your doc or dermatologist would allow a proper label. ...Read more
