Cat with wounded skin from scratching

by Theo

Hi everyone. I have an adult cat that is 4 years old. For the last 3 months it has wounds on the skin behind the ears on both sides.

Please help me to cure my cat. It is itchy and keeps scratching!

Thank you!

Dear Theo,

Your cat is definitely suffering and needs to be seen by a veterinarian right away. The most common cause of such severe scratching is cat flea allergy, but your cat needs to be treated as soon as possible.
