In brief: Flea bites

Use antiseptic soap to wash the flea bites.
Do not scratch flea bites. You can use 1% Hydrocortisone cream on the bites or take antihistamines for itching. A paste made of 2 parts baking soda ; 1 part water can be applied to bites. The bigger issue is that you must get rid of the fleas. Many people elect to hire an exterminator.
