Tony
bites me, bothers me, burns
Explanation:
This is a wild guess, because this expression can have a wide variety of meanings. Besides the direct translation, where the person is actually biten by dog or other animal (or stung - e.g. by a flea), this could also mean "bothers me" (like in "Gewissensbisse"), "burns in my eyes" (Salmiakgeist beißt in den Augen), etc.

Hope you find your solution among these proposals. If not, give some more explanation

agree  Theodore Quester: This is some joker trying to say "bite me" which is a slang put down in U.S. English. Let's ignore him.
