Flea bites on BART
I am a daily BART commuter who spends about an hour a day taking the train. On Thursday (8/22/2013), I was taking the train to work in the morning as usual. I remember the train car I was in had carpet floor and it was dirty with an unpleasant smell. Soon after I got to my office, I felt itchiness on both my ankles. Later that day, I developed a hive all over my lower leg area. I immediately consulted my doctor, she said the hive is consistent with flea bites.
I am trying to see if any of you BART riders have similar experiences. I want to find out if the fleas I have contracted might be coming from BART. I don't have carpet or pets at home. My work has carpet floor, but it is relatively clean and I have never seen any fleas around. I am really paranoid about wearing any kind of sandals to BART after this incident.
