|Have you seen a vet to rule out things like allergies? What food are you eating? Some foods might cause dry skin which leads to itching.
We use ditomacious earth (food grade) to kill fleas. We always leave it under furniature, under crate pads, in corners of the house etc. It works well. When we see a flea, we treat with frontline or advantage. We also vacuum a lot, and throw out the vacuum bags otherwise the flea eggs can hatch in there! Wash everything that can be washed-- take your rugs to the cleaners, wash all your comforters, blankets, dog beds, towels, everything in your linen closet etc. You can also apply some natural flea repellants to help give an added boost to your flea repelling power. Frequent bathing and combing (make sure y ou're not just throwing the hair in the trash in the house or it will take flea eggs into your trash to hatch back and re-infest your pet) is essential as well.
