Hi, so my cat been scratching her ears badly for the past 3 months. I used hydrocartizone for pets and it seemed to stop an itch but now she has bumps on the inside and outside(with dry skin) on her ears.
What should I do?
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
I am sorry Masya has this trouble.
It is an allergic reaction called miliary dermatitis:

Go to any drugstore and get chlortrimeton.It is next to benedryl.
Drop one quarter of a 4 mg pill into soft food or tuna every 24 hours:
It is very tiny so she won't even detect it:

You can also dab plain neosporen on the sores 3 times a day. It is safe if she ingests some.
