Prevention Of Flea Bites?
What should I wear so I don’t get bitten by fleas? Because at my house I’m the only one who gets it even though I sleep together while I’ve been bitten more than 30 times this week, what should I wear so I don’t get bitten by fleas? I’ve been to the doctor but only given ointment so I’d rather not be told what should I use to avoid fleas bites?? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Flea bites can cause the skin to become inflamed to the point of itching, burning, redness, and various other complaints. In people with sensitive skin types, tick bites can even make the skin swell, peel, water, and feel very annoying.
According to some literature, there are several factors that cause a person to be at a higher risk of getting bitten by insects and fleas than other people. These factors include blood type, skin type, and so on. However, it seems that the relationship between each of these factors with a person's susceptibility to being bitten by insects and fleas still needs to be proven through further research.
Some steps you can take to treat tick bites are as follows:
Use repellents and mosquito nets, especially when sleeping
Take a shower regularly 2x a day and wear clean clothes
Diligently wash your hands and shorten your nails
Prioritize clothes that are long and cover your body
Keep your home clean, vacuum furniture regularly, change curtains and bed linen regularly every 2 to 5 days, sweep and mop the room regularly
Improve air circulation at home
If later you are bitten by a tick, do not scratch the itchy skin excessively, but simply sprinkle with salycil powder or apply calamine lotion to reduce the itching
However, if the above efforts do not improve, you should immediately consult a dermatologist, okay?
I hope this helps.
