How Do Flea Bites Look Like On Human Skin
Having a bunch of little bumps appear on my skin, they look like flea bites, but they aren't. They don't itch until I touch them, more appear each day?
Hydrocortisone cream: 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, kill the fleas in the house, yard, pets. Other bites can look like flea bites such as scabies and other mites. Hydrocortisone cream and oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help the itch.
Flea bites: Flea bites appear within minutes after being bitten. It all begins with an itchy area that becomes red and puffy after being scratched.
What are causes to feel itchy (like flea bites) but the skin takes on blotchy pink color? This time of the year I may itch, but no bite marks seen.
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.
My 10 yr old daughter has a rash that looks like dry skin with blisters or flea bites. She says it has been there for months back right knee/calf.
Could Be, but..: To help you I would need a few more clues. Right now I would say it could be a lot of things. As a general rule if its dry its okay to put hydrocortisone, but if it looks damp lotrimin (clotrimazole) to start. Could be eczema, could be tinea and the treatments for either could make the other worse. I would suggest a visit to your pcp, or a dermatologist.
Small ones: Fleas are a pesky biter who is frustrated and bites often. The bite site is small and itchy, usually resolving over a week or with simple clensing. Larger sites probably represent a more substantial insect or a bite site that has become infected.See 1 more doctor answer
Flea bites: Flea bites may be clustered into 3 itchy bumps that bleed ; blanch (turn white) when you press on them. They tend to be found at skin folds (breast or groin) ; folds of joints (ankle, knee, elbow, axilla) as well as legs. A rash ; swelling can occur as well as secondary infection from scratching. A skin biopsy is sometimes needed for accurate diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
Help please. Saw picture of flea bites on humans and looks like one on my child. Too embarassed to tell anyone?
Don't worry: 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.
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.
