Fleas Bite Humans.

Are They Dangerous?


When you think of fleas, your first thoughts probably go immediately to your fur babies who are at the greatest risk of dealing with these itchy foes. Did you know they can cause some trouble for humans, too?

Fleas Bite Humans.

Fido isn’t the only one at risk for a flea bite. Here’s what to know about flea bites:

  • Appearance: Bites cause red, round bumps surrounded by halos.
  • What a bite feels like:
  • Symptoms: It varies from person to person, but most people experience extreme itchiness.
  • Complications: Some people are allergic to flea bites, and they may develop hives or rashes, which can take up to 24 hours to appear.

Even if you don’t have a pet, you can still deal with a flea infestation. There are human-specific fleas, and animal-feeding fleas might still be hiding in your backyard, waiting for wild animals to come by.
