Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
HI this is DRB and I feel that these two isues are likley unrelated. The conjunctivitis could be herpes conjunctivitis which can be treated supportively with lysine chews, DMG liquid for immune support and antibiotic ointment for his eye. As far as his skin goes usually excessive grooming in cats is actually food allergy related. So a trial with a hydrolysed protein food like science diet ZD food would help with ruling this out. Your kitty should also be flea combed and have a skin scrape + or minus a fungal culture. If all that was negative I would proceed with the food trial.
Once he is over his conjunctivitis I would have your vet administer the feline CVR vaccine. Do this twice at 3-4 week intervals. He may feel worse to start but will in the long run feel much better as this will build his resistance against future outbreaks.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you have questions as I check my computer each night. SIncerely, DRB
