I just got my new kitten, which was absolutely covered by fleas. i gave her a bath with original dawn dishwashing liquid (advice from pet store) and it was fine. well when i was washing her, i saw a small dime size sore at the middle of her neck, i put some antibiotic and it was fine. i just got home from a 2 day trip and the sore is now the size of a half dollar. there is no open wound, just a large very red sore. the hair around it has also fallen out. could it be an allergic reaction, or her scratching and biting has caused it to grow? any ideas or do i need to go to the expensive vet?
