It could be Trixie has licked off all the fur, and is now getting sores from licking. This is only one scenario.

Just because you don't see fleas doens't mean there aren't any. Are your animals treated for fleas with Frontline plus, advantage or Revolution?

Whatever the cause, Trixie needs to be seen by the vet to determine treatment.

I have a cat who licks a spot on herself until it creates sores. I use an oinment called Animax, prescribed by my vet, when the sores start showing.

I remember my deceased Pochee's back bottom legs had no fur when he was a kitten but no scabs. The fur appeared gradually when he grew up.
Check them properly, there must be fleas on them.

Trixie could have an allergic reaction to the shampoo. Over the counter flea products really are not safe to use on cats.

I'm not sure what you are saying about the frontline, (typo?) it almost looks like you are saying you fed them frontline! I hope you did not do that!

The problem may not be fleas at all. Trixie needs to see the vet.

I know, but what does it mean? When one thinks of Frontline the terms that come to mind are : "apply" or "put on" or even "use"

fled, meaning "ran away" does not seem to fit here, and the only typo situation I can think of is "fed"

Topical flea treatments, for anyone who may not know, are not meant to be taken internally. If anyone has given their cat one of these by mouth, call your vet or the poison control center immediately.
