What your describing is excessive licking or grooming. This can be secondary to an allergy/itching or stress. Have you treated Van for fleas?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No fleas but what kind of allergy relief can I give her
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I can see no indication fleas or mites

You can try 1/2 of a 4 mg Chlortrimeton once a day, however, a lot of cats excessively lick secondary to stress. How long has this been going on and are there any changes in the home that could be stressing Van out?
