I have a question about unusual scratching

Dear Dr. B.
I have a Bronze Egyptian mau that came from a breeder.
His birthday is Feb24,2010 .
When I got him,he had injured his nose badly on the carrier bars,and I would have to catch him ,and give him antibiotics.Which he hated .Ergo,he allows petting,but at the first sign I might pick him up,he bolts,so catching him at all is very difficult.
His fur is silky,his ears are pristine,eating and bowel habits unchanged.
However,in the last week,he has begun scratching himself so vigorously,he’s losing hair,and has scratches all along his chest and neck.
I’ve done a cursory exam as best I can,and the skin is just bare,with scratches. It doesn’t appear to be a rash,or from bites.
Nothing in the house has changed,and none of the other cats have this. I suspect a food allergy,but no idea what or why so suddenly.
I will try to catch him to go to our vet,but its so hard to do,can you give me any advice in the mean time.
