Ask your vet if they make aflea collar for guinea pigs; if not they may have a gel you can put on their neck which will kill the fleas.

Revolution is the best treatment for fleas on guinea pigs, however you will have to take your pig to a vet to get the proper dosage. Mites are more common on cavies, and often mistaken for fleas. Mites should be treated with ivermectin. Either way, a visit to your vet is in order, ASAP.
