I have a six year old cat who gets red and scabby ears in

Hi, I have a six year old cat who gets red and scabby ears in summer. She also has a few spots on other places on her body. The ears only get like this when we have dry grass as she rolls around on the ground, as all cats do, but my other two cats don't have a problem like hers. We used to have an older cat and he was the same. I have been using cortisone cream on her but it still looks the same. Any ideas?Thank you.
