Hi nikki-

First of all you are to be commended for taking such great care of this cat! But flea collars do not work and they do cause skin problems etc. What you need is either Advantage or Revolution, or one of those products that you get from your vet. If your cat will tolerate it, give him a bath first, let him get completely dry and then apply the flea treatment. Vacuum your carpets really well, even flea-bomb your house (removing the cats first of course) But please toss that flea collar in the trash, it really doesn't work very good. That may not be a food allergy on his head, it may be from the toxins in the flea collar.
