My cat has a bunch of open wounds. I'm almost certain they're from fleas, but is it alright to put medication on it?

Like, neosporin or bactine? She normally gets pretty bad scabs and stuff around this time of year.

I should think that it would be ok, seeing as you are trying to protect the wounds from infection

Please take your kitty to the vet for a checkup and treat her with Advantage or Frontline to kill the fleas. She'll also need to be dewormed, because fleas transmit tapeworm. Untreated tapeworms will lead to malnutrition and anemia. She may also have some kind of allergy that is causing these scabs and wound.
