Fleas are small, blood-sucking bugs that can infect a dog, cat or a human being. Animals and humans who come in contact with the fleas must contend with bites, scratching and uncomfortable days and nights. Promptly removing fleas from your body and hair will ensure that the itching stops.
Take a shower twice a day. Wash the body thoroughly with a loofah and soap. Using an insecticidal soap is not necessary because the fleas can be removed with the loofah's scraping motion.
Wash your hair in the shower with shampoo. While still in the shower, comb thorough your hair with a small-toothed comb. This, in combination with the shampoo, will remove the majority of the fleas.
Wash all of the bedding, clothing and anything else that can be placed in the washing machine on the "hot" cycle with liquid laundry soap. This should kill the fleas and their eggs.
Vacuum the rugs, furniture and any other surface that may have come in contact with the flea infestation, including more difficult places to reach such as under furniture or inside cabinets. Remove the vacuum bag and dispose of it outside. If the vacuum is bagless, empty the canister outdoors in a plastic bag. Place this bag in an outdoor trash receptacle.
