Flea circus.

Posted Tue Aug 03, 2004, 12:42 PM by Tracy | |

My body is a mass of itchy little bites. Itchy little bites on my limbs and torso, on my butt, even. They look like flea bites, but I’m not sure. I haven’t noticed any signs of fleas on the cats. E, who is much more hirsute than I, doesn’t have any itchy little bites.

It’s not hives (looked them up on WebMD) and I’ve had chicken pox. I haven’t changed lotions or laundry soaps recently. I haven’t eaten anything out of the ordinary which might cause an allergic reaction.

  1. Try taking a benadryl and see what it does (other than make you drowsy). If your bites look better then it's probably an allergic reaction. If not some little critter probably just feasted on you.

  2. Took a benadryl last night. Still itchy.

  4. It's not crabs. It's not where crabs normally are. Everywhere but.
