Sorry for the late reply
I suspect tht you cat may have a behavioural disorder associated with anxiety. Licking of the skin leads to a god feel factor - seratonin release.
This is a difficult condition to treat and may involve the use of hormone therapy or the use of psychotropic drugs such as clomipramine.
See if there is an initiating factorto the anxiety - new cats in the environment, other cats coming into the house etc.
