Finding Fleas Under Babies Skin
Thanks for providing such an interesting and informative site!
Here is our problem. We had two dogs until about 3 months ago, and since they've gone, we have become human buffets for
the left-behind fleas. We are treating and treating, and we will get relief for a bit, but then the "new hatches" come to
life, and we're right back where we started. We hope to eventually break the cycle and be flea-free.
In the meantime, I am considering trying out a Flea trap. We need some relief from the BITES while we get this problem
under control. Tonight, I was bathing my 2 year old son, and discovered a flea burrowed deep into the skin on his back. My
husband and I picked and picked at it with tweezers and fingernails, and still have not been able to remove the flea from
his skin. The baby is exhausted from screaming, so we are going to have to try after he goes to sleep. This is not the first
time this has happened, so I am wondering if you offer, or can recommend a product or home remedy to force a flea to back
out of human skin? Any advice or info would be MUCH appreciated, as I am scared to death that these flea bites may make him
Thank You so much,

Hi, thanks for your question.
It is unusual for a dog or cat flea to burrow under the skin of a human, although its a common occurance
with sand fleas or jiggers . This is the first time I have heard of it happening.You can remove the flea using a
sterile needle to widen the cavity and poke out the flea. Once this has been done it is important to keep the area clean and
dressed to avoid infection. You may want to have a doctor check it out. Heavy flea infestations can be difficult to
get rid of, but using first defense all natural flea treatment and a flea trap should help speed up the process.
