Cat scratching, but unsure why. (I don't think its fleas...at least I hope not.)

My kitty (a little over 1y/o now) has started recently scratching at her right eyebrow. I moved away some hairs to get a better look, and there were little pink bumps where she was itching at. I let her stay at my friend's house for a couple nights (he has a dog and an indoor/outdoor cat), and I'm afraid she might've picked something up from there. as I moved the hairs away from her eyebrow, a few hairs fell out! Please help!

Do you have a flea comb? They are a very fine-toothed comb (usually the teeth are like a row of blunt steel toothpicks, set very closely together). You can comb your kitty and fleas (if present) will get trapped in the teeth of the comb. Then you will be able to see what she has.
