Cat with longlasting skin candida infection

My can has a skin candida infection for almost 2 years now.

Cat is male, 12 yers old, castrated. Has a big scab on the left side of his neck one on his left side next to his leg and several smaller scabs on his head, near the tail and we observe little ones forming near his nose, paws and other places.

We've been removing the scabs but cat doesn't let touch himself now and is aggresive when he can only see us trying to do something. Tries not to let to spray or drop anythin on his fur. Tries to hide.


He tends to have swollen eyelids every few days or weeks as well! sometimes with tearing of one or two eyes. Sometimes just one eye is swollen. Seems random

He got 'normal' medicines: pills and sprays on his skin prescribed by a vet. It worked for a while but we cannot stuff him with chemistry all the time.

He is kinda cowardy. He is afraid of rapid movements, even if it's a well known person.
He developede a phobia towards the restroom and bathroom. He is afraid of entering them, however he used to sleep on the washing machine for hours when he was young!Now he stops next to the door and sniffs like expecting a danger... He can be scared becasue he sometimes is left for nights because of the owner's vacations. However a few people visit him at least once a day providing food, water, company and stroking.
He tends to pee on the carpet/floors when feels threatedn like after lots of strange people on a party or a apartment redecoration. Other times he is self assured and calm, likes to be cuddled but not too much. Doesn't like to be hold in hands more than 1-3 minutes.
Has very talkative moments when no one knows what he wants and becomes extremely annoying.

He was given candida albicans remedy for a few weeks but with no visible effect. It is hard to give him any regular doses. I also applied apis mellifica to his drinking water, nowadays he gets coloid silver to his drinking water. Please help us help our cat! I have no idea which remedy to use now and I need something concrete and effective!

Thank you!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him three doses (one dose means 2 pills) of Sulphur 200 at a gap of 12 hours. (only 3 doses in 10 days.)

If there is no change in next 10 days, please give him three doses of Phosphorus 200 in the same way and report back after another 10 days.

I've tried to give my cat pills in any form, but he does not accept them even put inside of chunks of his favourite snack. Can you recommend some other way of giving him right doses?

Can I make a dilution and add drops to his food or drinking water? Or put pills in his food and just leave them there?

Thank you
 
Mag889 9 years ago
You may make a dilution and add that to his drinking water. But you should throw away that water after he sips it few times.

I have one more question. Can you give me a specific company that sells Sulphur in pills? I have available mostly granules of a French company ( I live in Europe). Should I use pills or can I use granules and if so, how many as for one dose?

Thank you
 
Mag889 9 years ago
Yes, granules are fine. You may use 5-6 granules as a dose. Quantity doesn't matter in homeopathy.

You may read about homeopathic potency at the following thread..

Thank you again.

I must say I got a bit confused about dosage you wrote to me earlier.
I understood that the cat has to get three doses of Sulphur 200 at a gap of 12 hours for 10 days.

But after that you wrote only 3 doses in 10 days. It's impossible to give the cat only three doses in 10 days every 12 hours. Can you please explain me again?
 
Mag889 9 years ago
The three doses will be over in one and half days, you should wait for remaining days and then report back.

The cat lives with my relative and aparently it has already got 3 doses as you explained. But no change in his physical appearance or behaviour was observed.
 
Mag889 9 years ago
Please give him three doses of Calc Carb 200 in the same way and report back after few days.

Hello, after 3 doses of Calcarea Carbonica cat seems to be more lively and feeling better, also observed hair growing back on his ears (he tended to go a bit bolding).

However, he has more problems with eyes: the eyelids tend to be swollen and hairloss around eyes is visible. Cat sometimes seems to have problems with eyesight, closing or squinting his eyes. Sometimes he's tearing.

What is your further advice?

Thank you
 
Mag889 9 years ago
Please report after 7 days. Let the calc carb 200 work internally.

Hello,

cat definietly feels better and is more lively but scubs and hairloss haven't dissapeared. He still has visible bald spots at the top of his ears and around eyes. Eyes still tend to be swollen and the cat sometimes scratches his eyelids pretty hard.

Do you have advice on that?

Thank you
 
Mag889 9 years ago
Please wait for few days and see whether more improvement comes from the earlier dose. Please give him a single dose of Calc Carb 200 if there is no further improvement under the influence of earlier dose and report back after one week.

Hello,

I'm reporting on my cat health status:

Cat has better moood. Some of the scabs has fell off the skin mostly because of scratching but many of them is still on his skin and they keep on growing, but a bit slower.
His hair on tops of ears seem to grow back very slowly. His eyes are a bit swollen and there is still less hair on his eyelids and around his eyes. Eyes have visible white 'rim' probably because of skin shining thru or maybe some skin condition.
He sometimes scratches his eyelids pretty hard.
Fur sometimes stops being shiny, but then it comes back again.

What kind of further treatment do you recommend?

Thank you

You didn't specify whether he was given additional dose of calc carb?
 
kadwa 8 years ago
I understood the cat should not get additional dosage. No, he did not get anything for more than two weeks.
 
Mag889 8 years ago
No need to give extra dose if he is doing well on the earlier dose. Here changes can't be expected to take place very fast.

Hello,

the cat still seems to feel better in general but the scubs are present on his body (a bit smaller and drier). however last week he's been eating much less and started throwing up pretty often like he's having problems with digestion not really caused by hair in the stomach.

Can you advise me on that?

Thank you.

Please give him a single dose of Calc Carb 200 and see how that affects in next few days. If his appetite doesn't improve please give him a single dose of Lycopodium 200.

Hello,

The cat feels better and his fur is mostly shiny and his hair are growing back in balder spots around eyes and at the top of ears. He also stopped having digestion problems but also got a special food that helps to digest the fur.

However he got even more scabs all over his body. What should we do? I feel confused :/

Thank you

It is better to wait than to dose at this stage.
