Have you tried going to a vet? They have special shampoos for different skin conditions. You should not give them human shampoo as some of them have chemicals that are potentially harmful.

Hi - and welcome!

I have a friend who battled with her kitten's excema for ages and the only thing that worked was homeopathic remedies. I would say try a homeopathic approach. Good luck!

Hi and welcome to TCS!

Human shampoos/soaps aren't good for cats. I get dry skin from dial soap (don't use that). You probably need a medicated soap from your vet.

Haven't had any experience with your skin problem, but it does sound like you're trying a bunch of different things. Perhaps the remedies are aggravating the original problem? The above suggestions by everyone sound good.

Hi and Welcome to TCS!!

I would suggest checking with your vet concerning your kitties skin problem.

Hi and welcome to TCS.

I would also check with your vet first. Human soaps and shampoos aren't good for cats. There are both Western and Eastern approaches to medicines as well as Back-to - Basics homeopathic techniques.

It could be a range of things causing the skin problems.

One question - are you using plastic dishes? If so its generally a better to use a ceramic or stainless steel dishes.

If you use human shampoo to wash an animal use baby shampoo so it is mild for them.

Welcome and hello

My vet suggested using an anti-histamine for my cats flaky skin. You can call your vet and purchase some for them if they think that is the route to go.

First of all, welcome tot he site. As a newbie myself, I have found it very helpful and everyone is so cool. As for the eczema, one of my kitties has a dandruff problem. The vet told me to rub a little olive oil on his coat every once in awhile. It has seemed to work. I don't know if this would work for you or not.
