My cat is balding around her neck where she has scratched

Customer Question

My cat is balding around her neck where she has scratched her fur off. It was a bald spot, but is now like a ring around her neck, but it looks like the fur is growing back. Is there medication I can give her? I'm so worried because I can't afford a visit to to the vet. 😥

How long has she has these signs?

Any crusting or scaling of the skin in this area?

Can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web link here for me to have a peek.
