Our expert says:
Your local pharmacy or vet should be able to supply a flea powder which can be used around the house to exterminate the fleas. I don't know of any product, to be used on humans, which you can apply to prevent being bitten by fleas. People sometimes apply citronella oil mixed with aqueos cream to prevent mosquito bites - maybe it will work against flea bites too.
You can apply a mild cortisone cream or an antihistamine cream to existing bites, to ease the itching.
