Cat keeps scratching under chin
Lately my inside cat keeps scratching under his chin. He is doing it often. I thought i might have tracked a flea in so i put flea medicine on him but it didn't help. I can feel a little bump under his chin when i search and he likes when i scratch it. Other than that he still acts normal, same diet, still purs, just itches like crazy. Any suggestions?

Hi well it could be a skin allergy of some sort or perhaps a small bite. the trouble is that it really needs to be looked at by a vet for a proper diagnosis.
It really depends on how long he has the itch for. If it is for a couple of days and if he does not appear ro be il in any other way, then I would wait to see if the itch subsides and goes away. he may have had fleas and been biten and it will take a while for the effects of this to wear off.
If it is a long term problem then I would take him to the vets for a closer examination of the area.
Best wishes and I hope the problem is sorted out soon
