cat with itchy ears

My 8 year old cat, Minnie, was abandoned by her mom at 4 weeks and hand raised and vaccinated at normal intervals for the first year, which is where I think the trouble started.
Within that time, she developed very itchy ears that exude brown crud that the vet was sure was mites - it wasn't. Additionally, she developed stomatitis, eventually having most of her teeth removed, which helped. She also had a cyst appear in one ear that the vet was able to remove surgically.
She is deathly allergic to eggs and sensitive to fish, milk, corn and wheat (these all aggravate the ear problem, in the order listed).
I have tried raw food, but she won't eat it and begs for canned food. I use mostly foods with no byproducts and have stopped all vaccinations, except rabies, which I stretch to 4 years, with my vet's blessing.
I recently made a nosode using her ear discharge, but it proved too strong, despite repeated rinsing of the bottle with no succussions. I have tried thuja, sulphur and pulsatilla, (not all at once) 30c, succussed 100 times, and have seen a little improvement to begin with, but then the itch returns. I can tell whether she is feeling good by where she sleeps. When it's not bad, she finds a comfortable couch or bed and sleeps out in the open. When it's bugging her, she finds a dark and hidden spot to curl up in. She seems to prefer cold areas to warm ones.
I have only been experimenting with the hp stuff for a few months, so perhaps I haven't given it enough time, since she has had this problem virtually all her life since the first vaccinations. If anyone has any suggestions, I am desperate to make this cat comfortable in her declining years. Her mouth seems to be fine now and her coat is in good shape, her eyes are bright (although she has one cloudy lens from an early eye infection that her foster mom didn't treat quickly enough), her weight is normal, perhaps a little pudgy, and her demeanor is sweet, especially when she feels good. She is suspicious of any 'treatment', as she should be, given what her history is.
Can you help? CE

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please look into graphites, lycopodium and silicea.

Graphites is a good choice and it would be used first.

I do energy work, and arsenicum tested very high as a possible remedy for this cat. I applied a few drops of 30c, succussed 100 times, and the inflammation seems less - the graphites also tested high, and I plan to try that next, particularly if there is not marked improvement tomorrow (after three doses of Ars. The lycopodium did not test well for her, and I do not have any silicea, so that will be on hold. Thank you for your replies.

Ars and Graph are complementary remedies.

Ok, I have been using both ars, and graph since the last post and saw a great improvement in that the crust and redness went away and her demeanor improved (more sociable, not hiding in discomfort), but we seem to have stalled there. She still shakes her ears and doesn't like them touched, although she loves it if you rub them (i.e., scratch the itch). There is still brown waxy stuff being produced by these ears, likely from some food allergy, although she is on a restricted diet (no eggs, fish, corn, milk). Should I try strengthening the remedy by more succussions or try another remedy (s) ? Thanks for your help.
