Cat has serious allergic reaction PLS HELP

My cat Kelsey had developed scab like bumps all over her neck and head so I assumed that she had flees, went out and bought Frontline Plus and the problem went away.  A little over a year later the same problem occurred and I did the same thing.  Two months into the Frontline treatment the problem was not going away at all.  She had licked away hair on her stomach and was covered in scab like bumps all over her neck, head, and belly.  I tried everything from changing her food to the best and most expensive food offered by PetCo to shampoos, to topical sprays to relieve her itching.  

Finally nothing was working so I took her to the vet.  The vet said she probably had an allergic reaction to flees which is usually the case 90% of the time.  The vet gave her a steroid shot and gave me 6 months of new topical flee treatment called Revolution.  This was about 6 - 7 weeks ago and the bumps had all gone away and her hair on her stomach began to grow back.  I had thought that I had finally solved the problem after spending hundreds of dollars trying to fix it.  

Now about 2 weeks ago i had applied the second treatment of revolution and the scabs are back again and she is losing hair on her stomach very quickly with red marks all over her belly.  I don't know what to do anymore and I don't know how to fix the problem.  I seriously need some help because another trip the vet is going to put me in some financial hardships seeing as I am a poor college student.  If anyone has seen anything like that or has any advice please let me know immediately.

hi, os sorry for poor kitty....I will send you to a previous post where I gave a lengthy reply.............the thread is a very old one going way back to 2007 and some very outdated info...but please click on it and page way down and start reading on the recent reply dated Aug 25 2012 this will give you lots of info....
just a note, please don't continue to add any flea treatments, this isn't whats wrong...the kitty well may have a flea bite allergy but the fleas if ever there were any are long gone....
read from Aug 25th, try the recommendations I did to the other pet owner and lets see what happens...no more flea treatments and no steroids please....
