In brief: Treat cause

First of all, fix the source (i.
. Dog, carpet etc). For the itch you can use a topical steroid like Hydrocortisone and take an atihistamine like zyrtec (cetirizine). If this does not relive your symptoms see a dermatologist for prescription treatment.

In brief: Clear source of flea

Humans are not natural hosts for fleas, so that you.
You must make sure your pet is free from fleas and carpeting has to treated to get rid of fleas so that there is no source for reinfestation. The bites will resolve but a topical steroid can calm the skin and allow the reaction to resolve.
