  • Is it so bad you look like you have chickenpox or something? =(

  • I have never heard of a doctor calling them over seeing flea bites once but if they see them repeatedly on children them I heard they can.

  • In your previous question you mentioned that you had them "all over." This could be a concern for the doctor, especially if you are bringing an infant into the house. Just make sure you resolve the situation before it comes to that. Good luck chica.

  • That's a new one. Is it that bad, or is it just a few? You could flea bomb your house to kill them so you don't get more bites, but I gather since you are posting in pregnancy questions you are pregnant. Which means if you do bomb your house you have to have someone else air it out for at least 2 hours before you go in and you have to clean everything when you go back in. Might be worth it, though.
