cat scratching
 
Hi

It could be an allergic reaction to something, and it could also be some type of parasite that YOU cannot see, but a vet could through use of special lighting.

This calls for an upclose personal inspection from a vet.

No I haven't used any shampoos or anything else on her at all. I've tried Polysporin to her sores, but to no avail. She scratches throughout all the seasons as well - it's not specific to any time of year.

Try Olive oil on her food....it seemed to help my cats minor scratching problem! What did the vet say it was?

If your cat has scratched herself raw - take her to the VET.

It could be mites, it could be allergies, or it could be something else. Only a vet can help her.
