Cat with Pollen Allergies.I have a 4 year old Ragdoll Cat with extremely itchy skin. She has had this happen each summer/ fall since she was around 2 years. As soon as the cold months come around, her licking stops. She is almost bald at the base of her tail, with many scabs. She has one open wound on the side of her neck from her scratching and over grooming. She has full trust in me, but she is extremely fearful of any other human. She is fed a raw natural diet, no grains. I have a friend that has told me to try lycopodium because of her fear issues. I have not yet tried this, I would like to see what others suggest first. Thanks for your help!!

For skin issues,consider trying apple cider vinegar- that's not apple cider- it's apple cider vinegar. Available at any health food store. Apply it, undiluted, right down to the skin. Let dry. For open wounds , consider trying vitamin E until a scab forms, then apply the apple cider vinegar. Don't apply apple cider vinegar undiluted to open wounds or sores. It will also work if diluted 50/50 with water.
As for fear issues, look into the Bach Flower Essences. Non-toxic. It can be applied to a little soft food or added to the water dish. For those pets who are fearful and mistrusting - Willow,for terror-rock Rose, for the submissive nervous pet who is fearful in unfamiliar circumstances-Aspen. There are several others that are for fear-related issues. Your cat may fear humans because of a past trauma- if so, Star of Bethlehem. They work best when the exact remedy is found so it might be an idea to get a book on them and find the remedy that specifically relates to your cat's fear issues. Up to five remedies can be combined( 5-10 drops each in one ounce of water) or if two, given alternately, giving each remedy time to work before giving the next one. Another idea might be to try adding brewer's yeast to her food, or to give her 5-6 tablets a day if she dislikes the taste of the powder.
orian last decadeThanks for the advice! I have used ACV in her food, as it helps with the pH, etc. I have heard that it is great for the skin, so I will try this.
I use Bach Rescue Remedy for myself all the time. I have given it to her occasionally, if I know I am taking her to the vet, or I am going away...
I started giving her Phos, but I am not noticing any difference. I really don't think she is a Sulfer as she is a very meticulous cat, not messy at all, but then, I find cats are really hard to read...
I forgot to add that I do not vaccinate...
Thanks for the advice!
Deanna_ last decadeYou may try nat. mur 6c or 12c for some days. If it doesn't work or gives aggravation stop it.
