In brief: Flea bites
An oral antihistimine (ex.
Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec, Claritin or allegra) can be ingested. Topical anti-itch/inflammation creams, ointments, lotions (hydrocortisone, calamine, benadryl) can also be applied. Cool compresses and menthol topical preparations can sooth the area and decrease the itchy feeling.
