I had fleas inside of an apartment before and they did exactly that. The previous owner had a pet and the complex moved me to another apartment. Could it possibly be bed bugs???

  • Do you have a dog? Could it be fleas? I had fleas inside of an apartment before and they did exactly that. The previous owner had a pet and the complex moved me to another apartment. Could it possibly be bed bugs??? I don't know if its fleas - I don't have any animals but I was helping my sister move out of this place where they might have had bed bugs but I have had exterminators in and they said I don't have bed bugs - and my bed is safe from them - These are little black dots that fall off my legs and arms - my sisters dog had to be treaed at the vet for a bad case of infestion and I was at her new place for less than a week could I have caught something from the dog? any ideas and my skin can still be a bit red but no pain of sunburn..........any ideas??

I'd say that whatever the dog had, you have! Fleas! My skin itched very bad and I had small bites everywhere...couldn't see the little black things until I was in the bathroom and saw them jumping off me... You may want to call her Vets office to see what you can use... You may want to have your place sprayed for fleas as well... After I moved, I didn't have a problem!

If anyone can please tell me if they have had this or know how to treat it - I would be forever greatful. PLEASE HELP Fleas, ticks, lice, scabies, DO NOT BURROW UNDER SKIN AND ARE VISIBLE to examiners, generally. However demodex mites that cause mange in animals and demodicosis in humans DO BURROW UNDER SKIN AND PREFER TO LIVE IN HAIR FOLLICLES. It tends to live on the upper chest and face, and is more active at night. And most importantly the tests mosts clinicians perform to find the typical human parasites will miss this one. Human infection with this particular parasite is extremely rare, but it does happen. In fact I found another person on this board who probably has it too. Transmission typically requires prolonged exposure to an infected animal (usally a dog, but sometimes a cat) but there are over 65 different species of this particular little bugger, depending on your climate and geographic region. Person to person transmission does not occur to the best of my knowledge. Diagnostic testing is relatively simple: skin scrapings are taken with #8blade and examined under a microscope at 10-30x. The mite should be clearly visible. Treatment with antiparisitics like amitraz result in a cure.

ARE YOU SURE THAY JUMPED OF U OR DOES IT JUST LOOK LIKE LITTLE BLACK SPOTS in the mean time 1 -if u think it is something bitting u get some calominelotion from the chemist of any store.it will stop all iching. 2-if the itch stops then u know it was something bitting u 3-if u think it is a animal take a look to see if there is any bite marks on the animal.easy to see.4-if u have been to a house that has been closed up for some time it may have tinny flies .maybe spray the floors --- luse the calominelotion and see what happens,a bite will clear in a day or so ,
