Hi, so I've had my bengals for a month now, Onyx and Nala, and a few days ago while petting Onyx I feel a spot of something like that on her neck, now I've noticed than it just 2 or 3 days she's managed to scratch of her fur around her ears on both sides of her head.

Has anyone's else's bengals done this? And is it a flea problem- I've started spraying her with anti tic and flea spray because of it but could it be something else because the areas have literally gone bald.

If you need any pictures of it I can email them to you
Any help would be appreciated

I would not suggest spraying your cat with anything until a vet has had a chance to check for various causes. There could be so many reasons for this and it's just impossible to know without seeing the cat in person.

There are lots of possible reasons for that including:

Food allergies
Parasites (including fleas)
Airborne allergies
Various illnesses
Stress

You need to take your cat in to see the vet for this, and begin ruling out these various causes.

Please take your kitty to the vet. You cannot self-diagnose an issue without medical training, and you don't want to treat something that may or may not be a problem. Your vet will determine the issue and the treatment.
