Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with your kitty. What is his name? What flea treatment did you use?

In general, cats that are panting are in pretty significant respiratory distress, and this can be fatal in cats. Is there a 24 hour ER vet clinic you can take him to tonight?
