Skin problem?

Poppy is a six year old tortoise-shell female who has had perennial problems since I rescued her and her sister from the streets.

Her latest ailment is to wash her back excessively whereby the fur stands up rather like a punk rocker. Frontline was applied a few days ago and when I use the flea comb this only picks up fur, no fleas or flea dirt.

Lately, Poppy pulls out chunks of fur when she washes

I would like to know what the possible causes are of this latest problem and remedies available online or over the counter.

Her history is of serious rashes on her face and lesions on her neck for which the vet has offered no remedy other than to suggest these were due to allergies.
