My tabby short hair is scratching really bad around her cheeks and ears.

Dear Bernadette,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

Initially I would give a half dose of DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. After there are signs of improvement you can give a whole dose once a day. I would also give Probiotics to aid the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin. What do you feed your cat?

Have you looked inside the ears? If there is debris, you should see your veterinarian since there might be ear mites? It also possible there could be other mites.

Have you checked the coat for fleas? Hopefully you are dealing with just allergies.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
