I would vacuum it and encase it in plastic. They sell the covers at home stores

Are you positive these a flea bites? When I had bites they looked like those in this picture. Hers look more like mosquitoes or maybe excema.

First I would suggest her pediatrician check her out. He/she can confirm the bite type and give you the best solutions. I would hate to make any suggestions if your punkin has allergies or other things going on. She could be allergic to the detergent even!


Please let me know what you learn and what the doctor says. In the meantime just to be safe, keep pets out if her room and do thorough vaccuming of her room until the appointment.

Healing prayers!!

These do resemble bites but it is difficult to really tell just by looking at the pictures. I feel sure you can tell that it is a bite and must really be giving your baby a fit with itching.

You should check your pets for fleas as if they do have fleas, a weekly bath will not get rid of the source of the fleas, it will only kill the few that may be on your pets. If you have fleas they will be in almost everything; carpet, bedding, dust bunnies, around your baseboards, chairs, sofa, shoes, clothing, closets or anywhere the pets may wander (outside?).


If you see even one flea, your pets have fleas. You can check with your vet for a quick fix and then start cleaning everything that you can, especially vacuuming (throw the bag out immediately) as this is the best way to start.

Do your laundry in as hot of water as they can take and that will kill any fleas in or on your clothes.

If your pets do not have fleas then you need to take your baby to a doctor to try and find out what this is.
