Default Our seal Tabby Point Birman has a skin problem

I bought a seal tabby point Birman 3year old queen from a breeder
recently,on the active breeding list with the intention to breed from
her...But since bringing her home we have found that she has started
developing little patches of what looks like eczma,all over her body.I
tried to find out what it might be by ringing the breeder to ask if she
had ever had this problem with her before this incident,but all the
breeder could tell me was that she thought it might be an allergic
reaction to flea's,or central heating.I took the advice and immediately
went through every cat in our house with a fine tooth comb,but
discovered no flea's or flea refuse(flea excriment) on any of the
cats,so It can't be that;&I have started to allow her to spend the
majority of her time either outside,&/or, I have also given over the
new extension we had built for my partner to her,so that she has an
area where she can go away from the central heating,to try and resolve
the issue(I have turned the central heating off in there,& there is no
carpet to allow even potential for flea's egg's to hatch& infest any of
the cats)....but it has made no difference at all to her.If anything,it
is getting worse!!!(
We have 3Birmans,2Ragdolls & an 18year old pensioner moggie,none of
whom has suffered from anything remotely similar to this afliction.
When you look @ the crusts/scabs & feel it by probing,it feels like
little scabs that she simply cant leave alone because they are
obviously aggrivating her.I have been combing her regularly every day
in an attempt to try & stop them spreading & aleviate the itchyness for
her..& although it is not terrible presently,I am only too aware that
it casn/will inflame again & spread all over her body as it did
before.When I do this,she is more than happy to allow me to comb out
the little scabs as they form so that they don't irritate her into
sratching herself raw~although it is a stop-Gap,it doesn't answer the
problem,which is what is wrong with her & how can I best treat her for
it to stop it coming back?If anyone out there can relate to what I am
saying and advise me,I would be ever so grateful to you.I really feel
for her & my usual vet is also my neighbor &she is in Australia for
4weeks,so any advice would be more than gratefuly accepted.I would
rather stick to my own vet if possible,but will take her to any vet if
I have to, & cant find an answer,but this is just a last ditch attempt
to try & treat her for it, than take her to someone I don't know.(I am
agrophobic!).Many thanks to anyone that might be able to help me
too.This is the 1st time I have ever seen a service like this,so it
will be interesting to see if anyone does ever answer your questions.It
opens a whole new world for me If it does...hope to hear from some of
you soon.Thank you for any assisitance if you can help out on this
one..sheelagh
