No other symptoms I looked at him last night he does not appear to be sensitive. He is scratching though I believe he may have fleas going to get something for that this evening. But he may stop abruptly running or walking to lick himself

1- So you are not seeing any irritation in the skin?
2- Have you combed him for fleas?
