Since several weeks I've been really itchy, getting red bumps, usually only on my legs (starting on the ankles now they are up on my tighs as well), very itchy and usually with a red circle around the spots. Sometimes they're close to each other, the newest on my knee are 3 bumps in a row. We have dogs in the house and one of them has had fleas, we have treated her but some fleas are still there. I've believed it was flea bites but my boyfriend said it can't be because no one else in the house got them. But the symptoms and the pictures online match my bumps and itching nearly perfectly. I went to the GP yesterday and described it, she diagnosed me with eczema straightaway, even before looking at it. Then she looked at one spot and said it was eczema and prescribed me a cream. When I got home, I googled because I felt it was a wrong diagnosis, and the pictures do not match my spots at all. And I do not have that much of a dry skin. I still think it's flea bites.. I don't know what to do. I'm getting really annoyed and stressed now, it's so itchy. I usually get new spots (bites?) when I'm in bed, I discovered those 3 on my knee just now when I woke up because I was itchy. But my boyfriend sleeps in the same bed and he doesn't have anything, neither does his dad.

I hope you can advise me what to do. I'm get into really annoyed and stressed out.
(We have treated the dogs with flea bites, washed their beds, vacuumed everything in the downstairs area and used flea spray and collars.)
P. S. I hope it's the right group to post this in.
