I have a question about…Flea allergies

Hi Dr Brown,
I recently was told that one of my cats (I have two) has developed a flea allergy. I think I have taken the appropriate steps to rid her of her fleas, by means of treating the apartment, taking them to PetSmart (they were the ones who told me about it), and I put Frontline Plus on her every month. I started to notice her excessive biting and scrathing, fur loss around the base of her tail, her back side, and her belly and legs. Now that she is flea free, do you have any suggestions or recommendations to keep her flea free? Also, do I need to treat her skin as well? I have read that open wounds from her biting can lead to infection, however I did treat her once I noticed she started losing fur and the wounds are not too bad. Will they heal on thier own as long as I can keep her flea free? My cat is two years old. Please let me know what you suggest. Thanks in advance,
