Our expert says:
Itchy, it sounds like you suspect the fleas and I agree with you. It may of course be another insect like tics that bit you, but fleas are the most likely. You can take an oral anti-histamine like Phenergan® with the antihistamine cream if the itching is too bad. It should clear up within a couple of days if there s no secondary infection. If you start getting symptoms like headaches, nausea, etc. you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
