Itchy cat
My cat is constantly licking his hind legs and tail for the past week. There is a small red/brown patch on his leg under the hair. He does have allergies and is on Hills dd food. I use Fibrotec on him monthly and used Capstar today in case there are any fleas. What can I do to alleviate the itching? Is it safe to use aqueous cream while I monitor for a day or 2 longer?

You can try cream (or something like for a day or so, but will most probably have to take him to a vet for a proper examination.
