Flea bite allergy causes shell wounds in the abdomen, rump, and inner and back of the thighs. To stop scratching, the doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatories, while antibiotics will be applied to treat the wounds.
Depending on the type of allergy, the measures are different. In the case of flea bite allergy, it is advised to prevent deworming for avoiding it. As for atopic dermatitis, it is best to identify the responsible allergen and try to eliminate it from the environment in which the animal is.
