Hi Alta

Yes this could be a flea bite allergy. Please check for fleas/flea dirt and treat accordingly. If the skin is very inflamed then go to your local veterinary practice for Anti-histamine +/- cortisone as well as a convenia inj (antibiotic that lasts for 14 days)

Please note that there are many other allergens and aetiologies that may lead to this problem
