my cat has scabs and rashes

My cat has really bad scabs all over her head from scratching so hard.  She also has rashes on her belly around her nipples. I know she's scratching because she has fleas and I have done everything to help her, but she wont stop licking and scratching herself.  She's scratching so hard she's making herself bleed and scab on her head around her eyes and ears.  Is there any kind of cream or ointment safe enough that I could put on her to help relieve the itching and the rashes?  It seems like the more I wash her the more she licks and scratches herself.  Could she be allergic to the flea shampoo? Maybe her nails are too long in the back? Can anyone help me with my problem?

Yes, it could be a reaction to the poison in the shampoo. Be sure you aren't over bathing kitty (once a month only). You should go with the drops, as shampoos don't work well. Be sure to wait a week or so before treating, as you could overdose your cat with poison.

Have you checked if your cat has mange or ringworm? Both can involve scabbing, and it often looks like the scratching is causing the scabbing when it isn't.
