My boyfriend has the same thing.. it started out looking like little skeeter bites.. we have two dogs with fleas but we got rid of those and its still there.. and he scratches constantly! I've had him use itch cream but with no improvements.. He now has huge scabs where he has dug the spots.. have you figured it out yet??
