Fleas are infesting my body-- i never catch them because it happens in my sleep. I don't know where they're coming from! What can help prevent these hideous/ itching bites?? I clean my sheets, i got rid of my carpet, and i shower daily. Is there something fleas are attracted to in my blood? What could be causing this painnn!? Additional Details *****I also don't want to go to a doctor because doctors waste my money-- plus u can't go by myself anyways.

Nasty! Get a bug bomb or a good flea collar.
Buy over-the-counter flea treatments for cats or for cats&dogs.
Take a HOT shower and scrub your scalp with an anti-dandruff shampoo; leave it in awhile. Then put a drop of Advantix or a similar product on your neck.
Use flea powder in your room, on your bed, etc, when you get up; vacuum your bed or change your sheets before you sleep.
Cut up a couple of flea collars and put them in with your clean clothes, under your pillow, and in other places. Put a whole flea collar on your wrists before bed and take off before going out of your room. Carry a piece in each pocket.
Use a cottonball with hydrogen peroxide to clean the bites, then cover them with caladryl, calamine, or honey. If you use honey, cover with a bandaid.
If you itch bad, ask your parents for generic Benadryl--its cheaper than brand name. Look for boxes with names like Wal-dryl or whatever; the active ingredient you want is diphenhydramine. It can make you drowsy. Or you can ask your doctor to prescribe Atarax.
It is not healthy for you to be getten bitten by these fleas. Youve tried so much to get rid of them. Fleas multiply by the hundreds.so un less they are fumigated in all the rooms they are they will remain. Call an exterminator and he should be able to tell you what to do. my neighbor where i used to live called a chemical company and they told him to come get themixture from them. All he needed was a sprayer and good riddance to the fleas When he wore white socks, they would be black from all the fleas jumping on them. good luck witrh this problem. bettyk
Just an old guy is right and you can also eat more garlic (people can smell it) it will ward off any biting insect and as an added plus it keeps the Vampires away.
Fleas are a major pest. There are various species of fleas - cat fleas, dog fleas, rat fleas and rabbit fleas.
You can get rid of them by the safest and cheapest methods like boric acid.
Take Brewer's Yeast every day. You can get it just about anywhere, such as a drug store or Wal Mart. It makes you emit an odor that they don't like. It works quite well for mosquitos as well.
Don't worry, other people can't smell it.
flea eggs and larvae can stay in your carpets, couch cusions, towels and linens, ect. for up to a year! treat pets with frontline YEARLY NO MATTER WHAT. for your house, you'll have to look into some large area treatment. assuming you have pets, since you have fleas, make sure the insecticide is safe for pets
