2 year old female medium hair cat develops a skin rash around her chin, sides if her mouth and sometimes ears. Appears as a dark or black scab type irritation. Our Vet uses a Corticosteroid inject which clears it up fot 30 to 60 days, but it always comes back. We would like to find something different as she doen't like the Vet visit and the shot puts her under the weather for 2 or 3 days. We have changed food bowls from plastic to stainless steel to ceramic and have eliminated foods wih yeast. Any suggestions?
Maybe you can talk to your vet about cortisone pills that are given at home as opposed to a cortsone shot given at the vet. vetcare
