i was bitten many, many times by fleas when i was living in my old apartment, at first i didn't know what was biting me, after i figured out it was fleas (because i saw one) i moved out. now it has been almost three months later and my bites still haven't went away, and they are still extremely itch (they look like red dots, and others look just like a bump), i have tired putting on different stuff to make them heal or not itch, but none seem to have worked. please help i don't know what to do.
It is possible that the wounds arising out of the tick bites might be chronically inflamed, hence causing your current symptoms.
You may consult with your doctor for a prescription of topical medications like antibiotics (to clear the infection), steroid creams (to reduce the inflammation and itching) and other anti inflammatory medications, which may help in quick recovery of your symptoms.
