Hi there,

I'm Dr. Karing and I would be glad to help with your question about Fluffy. Usually reoccurring skin infections are the result of an allergy. Is Fluffy itchy?

Expert:  Dr. Karing replied 12 days ago.

Since there has been no response, I'm going to opt out and allow another veterinarian to help you.

Hi I'm Dr. Carole and I'm a small animal veterinarian. How long has Fluffy had these infections? What age did they start? How has the veterinarian diagnosed the infection? Was testing done of any sort?
