Hi my neutered male cat of 1.5 years (ragdoll) started itching a lot on the neck about 7 weeks ago and has shed hair from there because of it.

He stopped about 3 weeks ago and yesterday I discovered small black dots on his skin on his stomach.

I tried to peel them off but it did not work and the next time I looked at my stomach they were gone but had moved more towards the legs.

Today I looked at his throat when he started scratching there again and discovered a red spot.

What could this be due to?

He is an indoor cat and has not had any contact with other cats / animals. He eats Royal canin indoor for long-haired cats, always eating that brand.
