Out of the blue we are all itchy. What the heck can it be?

I was thinking bedbugs but it seems that would just make us itch at night. This is during the day.

  • bed bugs suck but you would all have it ONLY if you all shared the same contaminated bed.

    Fleas can get on people too. Where I live, our yards in the neighbor hood are all infested with the darn things, so everyone has them in their house, pets or not.

    soap or laundry detergent would be my best bet. or even new fabric softener.

  • you can get fleas without an animal just happened to my friends turns out her own landlord who owns the place and lives in the downstairs of the two family is infested. So much for renting from pigs.

  • Bed bugs leave bites that are very painful, and usually in a straight line with three or four bites. They do itch all day and night for several days. and they could be in several rooms if its a bad infestation. Take off your sheets and look in the edges of the mattress, behind picture frames, etc.

    Could be poison ivy?
