I have a 5 year old over weight male cat , Ezekiel (Zeky). A while ago he began to lose small patches of hair on his hind end. at first I thought it was because he was too fat and was licking the same spots over and over, but the hair would grow back then fall out again. then he started developing small sores I thought fleas, I treated for fleas and placed Antibiotic cream on the sore. He licked off the cream not much help. Then treated him with Boudreaux's butt paste (a diaper rash cream). (Works great on human rashes by the way great product). It would heal up for a little while days or even weeks then comes back. This last time it only worked for two days. It is a raw rash like irritation some times with a clear discharge. I am thinking the vet may be my only option but some one told me it could be a mite. How would I treat that?? Does make since the bug population here in Mississippi has grown since Hurricane Katrina. Any home remedy ideas before I haul Zeky to the vet?????
