I have a seven year old grey tabby named Mugsy that has developed a rash on both sides of his head from the eyes to the ears. The vet told me that this is most likely an allergic reaction to something, and prescribed some cortisone. Mugsy took the medication for two weeks, but the rash did not disappear, and he is often scratching the area. I will be returning to the vet in a few days, but was wondering if any one had any suggestions as how I can alleviate the discomfort for Mugsy so that he is not so itchy. His apetite is good, and he is drinking adequately. His behaviour is otherwise normal.
