I have never been bitten in my entire life and my DP generally gets ravaged in the summer.
However for the past few weeks I have had red itchy lumps only calves and ankles. At first I put them down to a problem I have with my immune system but those aren't normally itchy, and some of them are really big! What could they be?
I do have a cat but he has a flea allergy so we are meticulous about doing them (could my house get fleas without him having them?). Are there another bugs I wouldn't know about and if so what do I do about them?!
Even though you say your bites don't resemble what is shown as typical I'd say that their location is very indicative of fleas. Have you been to a friend's house where there are pets? (I used to get them at MIL's house at the time she had a cat, and it took me a few visits to cotton on!)
