What is the proper flea bite treatment?


Answer by  HawaiianGirl (6906)

I am not sure of any actual treatments. A flea bite shouldn't leave much of a sore. It will probably just leave a small itchy bite that should stop itching within a short amount of time, and as soon as you know it the bite will be gone.

Wash the area and apply a cold pack. Hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion will relieve the itching. Do not scratch the affected areas.

Wash the area and apply ice if there is swelling. Then apply or take an anti-histamine drug to help with the itching.

Clean affected area with rubbing alcohol, wash area with antiseptic soap, apply a cold pack to reduce swelling, apply 1% hydrocortisone cream (which helps reduce inflammation. If the flea bite worsens go see a physician.
