Reaction to a flea bite varies from mild itching, passing for a short time, to severe edema, to cope with which is possible only with the help of drugs. No matter how looked the bite, wash it with warm water and antiseptic soap. If around the wound started swelling, apply ice to it. It will remove puffiness and eliminate discomfort at the bite location.
If the bite had a strong itch, attach the soda pulp. To prepare a teaspoon of baking soda dilute a small amount of warm water. Apply the composition to the wound and wait until it dries. Relieve itching and accelerate the healing of the scratching will also help Apple cider vinegar mixed with water in proportion 1:1. Soak a cotton pad in the solution and apply it to the wound. Repeat the procedure every hour.
If the bite is swollen, it is better to use medication, not folk remedies. Lubricate the wound "Fenistil gel" or with balm "Asterisk". They eliminate itching, reduce inflammation and speed healing. If within a few hours of treatment is not noticeable, use hydrocortisone ointment. It's quite a serious tool, and therefore it must be applied in a thin layer and not more than twice a day.
Take antihistamines if the flea bite caused the allergic reaction. This may be a "Suprastin", "Tavegil", "Lomilan" and the like means. Preferably before applying them to consult a doctor.
Consult a doctor if the bite was any inflammation or suppuration. Expert advice can't hurt, and in that case, if even small wounds do not heal for a long time.
