|Our ShihTzu was horribly allergic to fleas. One bite would send him into scratching frenzies that would cause him to tear his skin up until it became infected, so we were extremely careful to use Frontline on him, but it got to where it didn't work well, and it was a real struggle. After we lost him, we got Jasper, who is also allergic to fleas. We didn't know that when we took him from the shelter, but we love him anyway. Frontline didn't do enough. Bathing wasn't enough to soothe him. I finally gave in and got Comfortis from our vet. It's a pill that is given once a month and makes the fleas that do bite him die immediately. Between giving him that and treating the yard with Beneficial Nematodes, we see very, very few fleas. So if your baby is flea allergic, I can recommend those alternatives. However, if it's a food allergy or something else, it may take a lot of trial and error to figure out. Good luck!
