Well something is biting the hell out of me. The only thing I can conclude is fleas but my husband has no bites what so ever. We’ve treated our cats and used Raid room spray for fleas. We’ve washed blankets and clothes and bedding and I’m still getting bit. But I haven’t seen any bugs! Should I be able to see fleas or could it be something else? We’ve also checked for sights of bed bugs but can’t find any and like I said my husband has NO bites. I’ve thought of hives because I recently got a super stressful promotion but what I have looks like bites. Please help!February 26, 2018 at 4:02 PM #78406BeccaGuest
I have the same thing, what was yours?February 26, 2018 at 4:35 PM #79307MollyGuest
I’m having the exact same issue! So itchy and no bugs anywhere. My boyfriend doesn’t get any bites either. I’m at my wits end. I’m thinking it might be a Dust Mite Allergy.February 28, 2018 at 6:10 AM #79664RosemarieGuest
I live in an apartment ground floor with a Leni screened in. My cats are indoor cats. I’m getting bites around my ankles, not my husband, only me. We have rugs in the bedrooms, 3 area rugs in the living room and dining room. Vinyl floors. Bites look like the pictures.March 4, 2018 at 5:04 AM #79763Kristin BradburnGuest
I have been suffering with this for 3 years. Cat fleas. They are different than dog fleas. As with bed bugs, men seldom suffer from bites because of testosterone. This will be to the point. A lot to explain! Everyone thinks you’re crazy because they can’t see anything. Several stages – Larvae are crescent shaped white, they stick to things like paint, glue, wax etc. Cat fleas host on cats, dogs and humans, anything with blood. Dog fleas only use dogs as host. Cat fleas are virtually invisible outside of larval stage. Larvae can live for years but extreme heat, humidity and vibration cause them to “erupt”. They spew out hundreds of fleas. If you find one big enough, one inch or so. If its been sedentary it will swirl around and spit out fleas. Too much to write please text me at 4437600009 ill be happy to explain more. Unfortunately I still haven’t found any help or doctors I think that are specialists. As of today they are embedded in my skin. Water imaging to no avail. Every time you vacuum the vibration releases more.March 9, 2018 at 7:08 AM #79986DezGuest
Okay back in December I came home one day and sat down and started feeling bites on my ankle, looked down and I had like 4 fleas on me. I had a 3 months old at the time so I rushed to my room, laid him on my bed so I could pack my things to leave to my mother’s house, when I reached to get him I found fleas all over his blanket. I took my things and went to my house. The next day my husband went and threw flea bombs around the house. We came back the next day and there were no signs of fleas anymore. We had a dog but our dog was only outside never inside. The following day we woke up with bites. Started getting bites in our car, started getting bitten everywhere, I was constantly washing and drying all the Fabrics in my house. After that we called a professional exterminator to come to the house. He came in and sprayed, we came back about two days later. We woke up to more bites, we called the professional exterminator back, he said it had to be bug bites, there’s no way fleas can survive, so he came in and sprayed my whole bedroom with bed bug spray even though there were no signs of bed bugs. That same night the bites continued. We let him know again, he came back about 3 days later and sprayed it again, the bites still continued, we called him back and he said there was no way they could survive. Keep washing and vacuuming every day that’s all I could do. There was too much poison in the house already to put anymore not to mention my husband bought apple cider spray and sprayed my car as well. This went on for about a week still after all the poison to one day it just stopped. Now it is March. About a week ago I found one Flea on my son. I started noticing bites on him so we just recently moved. About a couple days after that the first night at my new place I got eaten alive, so many bites I assumed we brought them with us somehow. We only brought our baseboard in our mattress the first night in our apartment and we got attacked. I feel them all over me. I shower, dry my clothes, they won’t go away. We threw bombs but no luck. At night it is the worst. I don’t know what to do. I got a new mattress, new sofas, new table, bagged every item, i still haven’t brought all my clothes from my old home. I can’t see anything, I’m going completely insane.March 14, 2018 at 7:04 AM #80163Mia schmidtGuest
I have the same thing, I’ve tried everything. I’m the only one who feels them. I’m sick and tried of chemicals. And then I spend thousands on chemicals. I’ve thrown so much out. New stuff, old stuff, I’ve cleaned. My family’s so tired of hearing about this. I am going crazy. Help!April 4, 2018 at 5:39 AM #80661Nippy Noo NooGuest
Hello. I have something similar. Doctor said try Nizoral shampoo for 5 days. But packet says only use twice. I think maybe mites. But i get the feeling something is jumping off my skin. I feel it in the hairs over my body, especially in the face hair. Also loosing face hair in patches. Itchy. At night I feel something tiny jumping over my face.
Not sure what to do. Im going to speak with a chemist and my gp. I have a lot of plants that attract tiny flies. Will get insecticide for that.
Nhs has nothing really about creams or shampoos. Its like no one is meant to talk about this?April 9, 2018 at 4:46 AM #80805Jan NeedhamGuest
Very itchy bites all over arms round hairline, face, neck, legs even under my clothes.
I shower 2 -3 times a day and the heat makes them itchier.
I wash my clothes.
Worse after sleeping – cant’s sleep anyway as sudden sharp intense bite feeling.
Still see nothing.
Maybe it’s lice if not fleas.
What can I do to repel them?
I am in hot Queensland.
Never had this issue when I lived in Tasmania or Victoria.
In my motorhome even when I change into clothes never worn before the itch comes after a few minutes to a few hours and sometimes within seconds.
I keep washing myself and my clothes and spraying all surfaces so much I am living in such a toxic environment it takes my breath away.

I’m housesitting in a home with 2 indoor/outdoor cats, and I also felt the itching and feeling like something was crawling on me. Saw white specks and figured maybe pet dander or mites. 2 days later I shake out my bedsheets and boom!! fleas start appearing around the house. I think most of them had just hatched.
For everyone above, I recommend getting flea traps. Enforcer makes a good trap (sticky paper sold separately). I’m about to go buy a few for this house. A few years ago my family dealt with a flea infestation at my grandmas (hundreds of fleas) and we plugged one of those traps in every room and kept a count of each one, it truly helped in the interim of getting flea treatments. The bowl of water/soap works too but in a house with pets getting into everything, the traps are ideal.May 18, 2018 at 3:01 AM #81989AnnaGuest
I am going absolutely insane with the same issue. Have you found any relief or idea of what it is?July 12, 2018 at 10:14 AM #83796AlexGuest
I have the same problem, and I had it last year too. My problem appeared after I walked through tall grass. After 1 or 2 days at home, I started to develop rash, in the shape of triangle or in line, around 3 bites. Only in the night, and I am the only one in home who gets bitten. If I get bitten a few nights, then for about 2-3 weeks I am free, but it starts again.
I found as a solution (for me it worked) after a few months when everyone in my family considered me a crazy person talking about fleas, I bought boric acid and I spread it everywhere on the carpet and under the bed. We left home for 2 days, and when I returned i never got fleas for 1 year. Now I walked again through the same place and I got fleas again.
I hope this help you all. For me boric acid worked. Hope it will work now too.August 1, 2018 at 6:05 AM #84254paolaGuest
i just got a puppy and it was tick and flea ridden, took care of that but made the mistake of putting him on my bed one night. i felt something on my face and it was a flea! so gross, i took all 4, 5 of them off and squished them and ever since then i wake up with like 3 new bites everyday for about a week now. i see no flea on my bed so i dont know where they are coming from. they are all over my body.September 16, 2018 at 10:17 AM #85148LaurenGuest
I’m freaking out reading all these comments. Our outdoor cat got fleas and they transferred to our indoor dog. I’ve never been so overwhelmed and grossed out! We sprayed and it seemed to do the job. Well I’m still getting bit and miserable. I DON’T SEE ANYTHING! Yet I feel things crawling on me and feel a bite but don’t see anything. We’ve washed bedding, clothes, furniture and vacuum. This can’t be my life. And all the CHEMICALS. I just went a few days without bites and was hopeful. Today I have several bites. So tired of this.September 18, 2018 at 5:28 AM #85209EllieGuest
I am having the same problem. For months I have been getting incredibly itchy bites whilst no one else in the house has a single one yet I am covered from head to toe. I have been prescribed medication by the doctors and I am now taking two different types of antihistamine because the itching is that bad I can’t sleep at night. We have a cat who is regularly treated with flea treatment despite never having shown any signs of fleas. I also regularly deep clean the whole house and spray insecticides on almost everything as I am that paranoid and fed up of whatever is biting me. I’ve bought flea lamp traps and yet again there is still no sign of fleas. I’ve tried pretty much every repellent out there but I am still coming out in incredibly itchy bites. I am going insane and the people around me think I am too with the obsessive bed sheet washing, house cleaning and insecticide spraying. Does anyone know of it is possible that despite all this it could still be fleas that are biting me?September 18, 2018 at 5:31 AM #85211JoGuest
I am getting bitten in two different houses when I put on trousers/leggings. The dogs with us have been flea-treated and how could this happen in two different properties, one of which the dogs don’t enter? I put on some leggings for yoga earlier tonight and felt as if something was crawling on me. Lo and behold, I have bites on my bottom and lower back. Yet I haven’t seen a damn flea!October 4, 2018 at 5:32 AM #85518AmalGuest
I think you should try bleach on your skin. Just add bleach to a gallon of water. 1 to 2 cups per gallon and pour on your body or itchy spots. Even if you apply full strength bleach with your hands to the itchy areas it will not harm. You will know it worked instantly because it will stop itching. Try it.October 24, 2018 at 5:27 AM #86000KathyGuest
I’m experiencing the same thing. A month ago we went out of town and stayed in a flea bag of a motel for two nights. Not sure if we brought something back or what, but every day since we got back I’ve been bitten every day/night. Looks like flea bites but have never seen a flea or anything else. Many bites are under my clothes. Used flea traps and saw nothing. Sprayed for fleas, and no relief. Have dogs but use monthly flea control on them and they don’t have any fleas and never have. Took out all of our carpeting and replaced with hard flooring. Wash bedding and clothes constantly. I don’t know what to do. This is crazy!November 20, 2018 at 9:05 AM #86619JessGuest
I keep getting this, it has to be fleas! It happened to me last year I got 10-12 bites a day everywhere the itch was insane so much itchier than mosquito bites and the bites have left many unsightly scars. I think this carried on for 4 months or so then stopped. Recently again the SAME time of year I rested on my sofa and woke up with 12 bites on my hip area, another 8 on the other side and 5 or 6 on each foot. I live in a house with 5 other people and I’m the only one getting bit. It’s maddening. Just the other morning I shooed our bully off the couch, he knows he’s not suppose to be up there, but I find it so strange that it’s at the same time every year and I’m the only one getting bites.December 4, 2018 at 10:47 AM #87008NadiaGuest
I have been getting bitten for a year now. My cat had fleas last December and I got him treated. I threw out my mattress, changed all my bedding and had my room exterminated.
But I think I have hives now. Because old flea bites flare up all the time, last a day, then quiet down, then another spot flare up again. Its a year of flare ups of old bites. I don’t understand.January 29, 2019 at 7:09 AM #88330ChristinaGuest
I have the same problem! My husband thinks I am starting to loose my mind bc we don’t see anything but somehow we are getting bitten. He is in complete denial bc his bites look like pimples and he mostly gets them in his back. Due the cold weather he thinks it’s just dry skin that itches him but i see bites! Not to mention the bites i have too! I have the most bites out of us two. The problem is that we don’t see anything. This just started 3 weeks ago. Long story short, 3 years ago I had fleas bc landlord brought a piece of furniture infested with them. It was the hardest thing to get rid of so I ended up moving, then again, fleas in the new place. They must have moved with my things. I sprayed the place so many times and when i thought things were better, I would wake up with some bites! Then I moved again, but all of my things were left in the garage at my new place. I was so nervous but finally no more fleas. 3 years clean i even forgot what it all was. However, we decided to clear the garage so we can put a car. We clear it and organize it. A car fits there now and I just don’t understand but the bites, the crawling feeling is back! HOW? After 3 years? I even thought i was going nuts but when i see bites on my legs arms and even face I know I’m not crazy. Like I said, my husband has bites too but NOTHING we don’t see anything. Help! I have been vacuuming every day but the problem appears to be in the cars more than our house.February 4, 2019 at 9:33 AM #88469Allen TateGuest
Better hire a great pest control provider and avail pest control facility.
