Want to treat cat with staph - Don't know which remedy to use please help!

My cat has a staph infection. I know this is what it is because he had the same thing last year at this time and we took him to the vet who diagnosed him and put him on antibiotics. This time I would like to avoid that and treat him with homeopathic medicine. He is a little over 2 years old, and his symptoms are outbreaks of tiny bumps on his head, around the ears, and on the head that ooze get crusty and bleed. It looks like a cat fight but it's not. When left untreated they spread like wild fire and go down his neck, etc... Which remedy can I us for him in place of antibiotics? Also how much, what strength, and how often would be helpful. He weighs 13lbs. Thank you in advance for helping me to treat him. :0) I am forever greatful!!! (and my kitty Blessing will be too!)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
is it itching?
what color is ooze? bleed when he is scratching or even without?

It doesn't seem to itch. I haven't noticed him scratching or anything. First it just looks like a scab with no color or oozing and then it bursts and it oozes blood and maybe some clear liquid I can't really tell because the bumps are about the size of a sesame seed (very small) and lots of them. He does scratch, they bleed on their own.

I meant he does NOT scratch them at the end of my last post.

you mean the scab bursts and oozes blood without any pus?
(I always thought that you have pus with staph infection but I'm not a vet - although staph was a hero of my master thesis-but his genetics... :o(

do you think he would like something cold or warm on it, or have it washed, or, what I think, he really doesn't care as it does not bother him?

Do you think they spread more in warm room, cool outdoors...etc?
Astra2012 last decade
It may have some sort of pus, but it is such a small amount that I can't tell. I just know if left untreated this thing is going to spread out of control. I don't know which homeopathic can be given instead of antibiotics. I just don't want to give antibiotics only to have it cleared up for a while and mask the problem and have it re-occur again later. I'd rather treat it naturally and get it healed up.

Give him DULCAMARA 6C, one dose, but don't touch the pellets yourself;some people like crushing pellets on the piece of paper, and then 'pouring' it into cat's mouth; ohers like mixing it well in a bit of waterand giving itt in syrring.

let's give him 4-5 days- and then post here.

What sort of cat is he, his temperament etc? Is he active, lazy, affectionate, independent, docile, aggressive, etc etc. Describe him.

Astra, I'm intrigued, why Dulcamara?

Hi Jacob,
Dulcamara is #3 for facial eruptions, also they are not itching, crusty/scaby, bleeding. Which is the only symptom given (and which unfortunately is also covered by other remedies!)

I chose Dulc. though because his symptoms tend to ocurr at this time of the yearand that's characteristic of Dulc.-symptoms in late summer/fall when days are warm and nights cold.
Astra2012 last decade
How are you doing?
Astra2012 last decade
We didn't try the Dulc. because I don't have any and we live in a rural area where I can't buy any. So I regrettably got him anti-biotics, because it was spreading and I was getting so concerned. I couldn’t let it go on anymore and I crumbled and got him anti biotics. Now I need to build up his immune system so this won’t happen again. I know that anti-biotics don't cure it just mask it for a while. So, would you recommend that I still try the Dulc even after the anti-biotics or is there something else I can do to prevent this from coming back? I also need to build my other cats (I have 6) immune systems up. I have some vitamins for them and some yeast and garlic tabs I will start giving them. Also, I just noticed that 2 of my other cats have a few of the outbreaks yesterday. They are not as bad as the first cat yet. So, maybe I can get them on a remedy and treat it before it gets to bad like Blessings did.. I’ve got these 6 cats and I just want to keep them all healthy and I know anti biotics are not the answer. As far as Blessing's info (my first kitty who got the strep) We adopted him and his sister Rosita (one of the other 2 who are now starting to get a few spots). They were stray kittens who showed up at our house about 8 weeks old. They both had this same thing about a year ago and the vet said it was staph. Blessing is a mellow and affectionate cat. His behavior and everything is the same with the out break you wouldn’t even know he had it if it wasn’t visible. No scratching or anything. Appetite is the same. There really is no change in him except these things on his head. His sister Rosita is more independent, and not very affectionate. Junior ( the other kitty who has a couple of the outbreaks)was also a stray who adopted us. He came to us about 3 years ago as a 12 week old kitten. He’s an kind of an odd kitty. Calm and independent one minute, and then all the sudden wants affection now! Also lately sometimes when we call him for dinner he will just sit on the porch & stare at you like “huh?”.

Not sure if I should give Rosita and Junior Dulc. as soon as I can get some, or something else. What do you think? Also suggestions on how to prevent these outbreaks in my other 3 kitties and in all of them in the future would be welcome.

I noticed you said Dulc. is #3 for facial eruptions. What is #1? Also you say they are not bleeding or crusty/scabby. Which is not true. They are like tiny scabs, and there is a bit of blood. One last question do you have a specific book on homeopathics you prefer or where do you get your information? I appreciation your thoughtful consideration of our situation.
