How long do flea bites last?


Answer by  DouglasEarlClore (1236)

Irritation from flea bites can last several weeks, but more important is to break the egg to adult cycle which will go on indefinitely until stopped. There are many retail flea products including powders, baths and collars for pets and "bombs" for dwellings. In severe cases, professional exterminators may be needed.

Flea bites take usually about 2 weeks to fully heal if you keep them clean and don't scratch them. It's longer if you irritate them though.


Answer by  LB (36)

The irritation from a flea bite can last from a few minutes to a few hours. For some, a flea bite irritation may last up to a few days. Everyone has different sensitivity to a flea bite. It will depend on a person's individual reaction to such a bite.


Answer by  LLove (33)

Flea bites usually last around one to two weeks depending on your age and health. Younger people tend to heal faster than older people. The marks from the bites last much longer.


Answer by  Anonymous

Anyone who says a flea bite only last a couple hours or a couple days, has no clue what they are talking about. They last 2-6 weeks depending on the flea, the person, and rather you scratched or not.
