Pasha, my 1-1/2 yr old cat has sores on her ears and head.

Customer Question

Pasha, my 1-1/2 yr old cat has sores on her ears and head. She is constantly scratching and they are becoming scabby. What medication should I get to clear this up? My vet says it may be allergy related but it does not seem to be clearing up but getting worse. I have treated her with multiple flea treatments and they gave her antibiotics and cortizone but no help yet. Is there anything else I can do to help her?

I'm sorry to hear of this with Pasha. Can you upload a photo of representative skin to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if that icon is visible) or you can use an external app such as I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.

I do not see a paper clip or any toolbar to send the photo. Please advise how to send the photo via an email attachment. Pat Davidson for Pasha
