Treating Cat Flea Bites on Humans

Treating Cat Flea Bites on Humans

If you notice red itchy bumps around your ankles or the lower legs, immediately wash the affected area with an antibacterial soap. Since hot water will aggravate the itching sensation, make sure that you use cold water.

Dry the area with a clean cloth and apply a hydrocortisone cream on it. You can also apply a calamine lotion to get relief from itching.

If you are experiencing severe itching and discomfort, you should consult a doctor. Doctors generally prescribe antihistamines for alleviating the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Application of ice packs will also help in reducing the swelling. Since scratching over these bumps can make you prone to a secondary bacterial infection, refrain from scratching over the affected area.

Besides following these instructions, you should also follow certain measures to prevent an infestation in future. The best way to prevent cat fleas on humans is to free your home and your pet from these bloodsucking parasites.
