If you notice your baby or infant has flea bites, its time to take action. Of course, first of all, make sure they are flea bites. It could be many other things, but check out our flea bites on symptoms page first. So lets assume your baby has flea bites, what do we do now? Well read on.
First of all, if your baby or infant has an allergic reaction to the flea bites, get to a doctor ASAP. If your baby is still awake and not screaming, it has not had an allergic reaction, so don’t worry. Allergic reactions are very rare, and it isn’t actually the flea bite the baby is allergic to, its the flea saliva. So of course, they main thing we need to do is make sure the house is rid of fleas. There are many ways to do this, and you can check out articles on this site for the purpose. If you are using chemical products, I recommend removing the baby from the house, maybe to a neighbor or something of the sort.
Next, hoover the whole house after you have spread or sprayed your product, and put any bedding into the washing machine on a high temperature. This should remove the fleas from your house, and now you should look into some flea traps or other flea prevention to stop it happening again.Once you have done this, and you are sure you have done a thorough job, look for treating your babies flea bites. If it was down to me, i would use natural treatments, for example coconut paste, but if you are going to buy a product from a pharmacist, ask for advice if you are unsure.
