|If you're an indoor kitty, fleas aren't likely to be a big problem.
I have psychogenic allopecia and overgroom my belly. Since my issue is psychological, there aren't many treatments that have helped. It does get worse when I'm under stress, though. Have there been any new sources of stress in your life lately, Rocko?
But I'm assuming that your issue is because of an allergy and not psychological (since you did respond to the steroid injections), has your vet considered longer-term treatment with steroids? I took prednisone (pills) every day for a while. It didn't help me but it could possibly help you. In case it was a contact allergy or food allergy, my vet also recommended a perfume-free litter and a limited ingredient/novel protein diet (in this case, Natural Balance Green Pea and Duck dry and/or the duck or venison wet, though I'm sure there are others).
Just a few ideas! Good luck, Rocko! Keep us posted!
