Raised and looks like reaction to ticks
He has about fifteen on his body like this
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 3 years ago.
It sounds like he is allergic to fleas, I would recommend you pick up in your local chemist zyrtec (cetirizine), this is an anti histamine and it will help with the allergic reaction. Now, for the fleas this is what you can do:

1- It is ok to treat again with frontline. Continue using frontline once a month.
2- Start him on Capstar tablets once a day every other day for 2 weeks.
3- Treat the home/premises with products against fleas that have the ingredient "sodium polyborate." This will eliminate the larvae in the environment which it is often the problem with persistent fleas infestation.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
