Itching and licking can be caused by other things. You need to first confirm that the problem is being caused by fleas. You may not be able to see any fleas, but if they are present they are pooping and you can test for them.
Lay some white paper towels or and old white sheet down and place the cat on it. Brush vigorously in the following areas: base of the ears, neck, arm pits, base of tail, around the anus. I find brushing against the direction of the fur is better for dislodging flea dirt. If black specs appear of the white background, wet them...if they turn red then it's flea dirt (which is dried blood).
If you don't find any evidence of fleas, then you have a different issue going on. If you do, then the problem may be bigger than the Revolution can handle if your home is infested and you will need to treat the environment.
