Ferret's hair loss as a side effect of Advantage.

I gave my ferret Advantage flea treatment ~3months ago and he is balding at the application site, his nape, and it's spreading. He's been treated before without incident, but this time I dosed him with a little too much. He might have recieved ~30% too much. The interwebs tell me that fur loss is sometimes a side effect in cats and is considered not serious. He is fine besides the fur loss, but the balding hasn't arrested. Is there something I can do to stop it? How long until his fur regrows?

My goodness. The poor thing. We had a little ferret for a dozen years and they make magnificent pets. The darn flea treatment gets under the skin. I would contact the manufacturer. I am sure they have had this happen before.
