No I do not think it would be a bad idea at all. I would highly remomcend using Lime Dip on the kitten´╗┐ you found. Although, the dip can dry out the skin, it works very well and fleas do not like it much either. You can also use diaper rash cream for babies to help with the irritated skin. Another great product is Biomec 4000 on ebay for a low price, which is an oral tablet for fleas, deworming, mange, ringworm, and more all in one. Let me know if you need anything else. Good luck with the kitten
