Dd has two tiny pin prickly red spots on her forehead. They have a tiny white dot in the middle and a red ring around the outside. Is it likely to be fleas?

I don't think I've seen white dots on a flea bite. And the forehead is a damn strange place to get them, unless she spends a lot of time laying around on the carpet I suppose.

Do you have a cat? If so have you checked it for fleas?

Yeah I have a cat but I can't see anything on her. I've been itching a lot too especially around my scalp and my ankles but I don't have any bite marks. Maybe it's just a coincidence I don't know

Have you checked your cat with a flea comb? Do you use flea treatments on her?

I'd say they're like a little red spot that itches like hell, nothing comes out though (except a little clear liquid) if you squeeze it.

I'm pretty sure they're fleas sad how did she get them when I've been treating her?? I can't stop scratching at the thought of it.

That doesn't sound like flea bites to me.

They look like inflamed milk spots. There's now 3 of them in a row.
