Frontline only applied to fur

I adopoted a kitten from an animal shelter about two weeks ago and according to the shelter she was treated with frontline for fleas and ticks on 10/04. This morning i noticed tiny red bumps scattered all over my body and got nervous  it might be fleas. The vet supplied me with one free frontline plus application so I decided I would apply it to her even though it is 3 days short of a month. I put it on her shoulder blades, but unfortunatley did not fully read the instructions and just put it superficially on her fur. Once I realized my mistake I tried to "massage" it into her skin. Should I wash it and reapply a new one? Or should this be effective enough? I am nervous because I live in an apartment building and do not want to infest the whole building.

I would give kitty a bath and reapply it.  Hopefully your kitty won't be too obnoxious to give a bath.  LOL  The flea product most definitely needs to be in contact w/ the skin, and I don't think it would work when it sits on top of the fur.

Good luck.  Come back and let me know how kitty's first bath went.  = )
