Help! I need some advice.
I know this is going to sound so totally gross, but here it goes. My oldest son Tyler started getting some little itchy spots around his ankles about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I figured it was some allergy to grass or something at school. Then the spots started showing up in other places. On Tuesday I had had enough and took him to the Dr. The Dr. informed me that he is being bitten by fleas. Totally disgusting!!! Well, I have been freaking out, my pest control guy sprayed the yard yesterday and is coming to spray the house next week, but everyone keeps telling me that if they are in the house we would all have bites. Oh ya, and we have NO pets, very rare to have fleas around with no pets, my pest control guy is baffled. NO one else has bites. So, my poor kid has these stupid bites all over his body and I can't figure out where they are coming from. The only think I can figure is from someone or something at school. So, I emailed his teacher and they are investigating on that end. Have any of you ever dealt with this? I am suspecting it is one of the kids he is sitting next to in class, should I asked if he be moved and see if that helps? I just don't know what to do. I am totally paranoid they are in my house - it so gross.
