A. It's probably not related to the FIV but this condition do restrict you from some of the treatment options. one thing you should try is advcocate or revolution, 2 weeks apart for 3 times, as these products treat all kind of skin parasites that the advantage doesn't.
If the problem does not resolve I recommend sending a blood test for allergies, this way the cause of allergy will probably be detected.
