Experience: Small animal veterinarian with a special interest in cats, happy to discuss any questions you have.
Verified
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Did you mean irritation?
Any sores, pimples, pustules, redness, scaling or crusting of the skin here?
Any open wounds?
When was she last treated for fleas? What did you use?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, this will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the wee paper clip on the tool bar above your text box. Or if you cannot see that on your computer/phone, then you can post them on an alternative site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, imgur, etc) and paste the web link here for me to check.
