Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When did these lesions start? 2) Are you seeing any crusting or pus? 3) How large are these scabs? 4) Is she indoors only? 5) Are they itchy? 6) Is she on any medication at this time?
It sounds like you may be observing miliary dermatitis in your cat, which is commonly linked to allergies. I can give you some steps to try at home, but she may also need antibiotics. More info here: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+2117&aid=150If she's not on a monthly flea prevention, it would be wise to start one.You can treat the miliary dermatitis with an OTC antihistamine called Chlorpheniramine. Give 1-4mg by mouth up to twice daily as needed. You may need 5-10 days of every day dosing to see the highest improvement for her and these may need to be used every day to keep symptoms at bay.
