Re: my whole family is itching

1-did you recently chance brands of washing deterrent for your clothes/linens? Or soap for bathing/washing?

2-do you own a dog or cat?

That's all I can think of.

Re: my whole family is itching

Can imagine how uncomfortable you all must feel!
My thoughts:
Could someone have brought fleas into the home from another source?
Could your brand of soap,detergent, lotion, changed without you noticing?
Any sprays you are using in the home?
Now that it's cooler has your heat been on? Could it be something to do with the vents or furnace?
Something in your water? Water pipes?
New vehicle, carpeting?
I know these may seems far fetched, just trying to look at all angles; things everyone in the family could/would come in contact with.
Best of luck.

Re: my whole family is itching

I would approach the apartment complex manager and report your symptoms. Perhaps the spray that they are using has been changed to something new, ie., a new brand or they could be treating for something different. You may not be the only ones affected, so you could talk to your neighbors to see if they have similar symptoms.
Get the name of the spray and then research it to see if it causes your symptoms. if they agree to try diff sprays, keep a written record of when they spray and how you fee afterwards.

If you think its the spray, you can ask them not to spray your place or to use something else. if they refuse, or won't work with you, contact your attorney
