ugh. Fleas= HELL.
I would recommend comfortis as well... I've read what other's have heard as well that fleas are starting to build up a tolerance to Frontline.
I haven't experienced it with a dog, but my two indoor cats got them from my friends dog. Flea dips, wash ALL of the bedding ( I found fleas in our bed and was so creeped out being in the house). Wash window treatments. Anything soft.
Although humans don't need to worry about it, I remember pretty much treating it like lice (I'm a hair stylist, and unfortunately came across a client who had it and, although I never got it, I went through all of the measures just to make sure). Vaccuum all surfaces and through away the vaccum bag. Also make sure to treat your car.
If I were you I would have pest control come out and treat your house. We did several bombs on the house but they were never fully effective. Save yourself the time and money and just have it done right the first time by a professional.
I feel for you right now.... and now I'm itchy too just at the thought of it!
