I have a 4 year old cat that has rash like bumps. She scratches her face until it bleeds...and now the fur has also come off around her back sides. The vet thinks it may be food allergies but we have been unable as yet to determine which ingrediant it is. I read today that plastic bowls can harbor bacteria that can also cause these problems.....does anyone have an ideas on how to help her???

Yeah, either find out what she's allergic to by doing tests or change her diet to a prescription diet. This really does sound like a food allergy. If your vet does not do the testing, search around for one that does. It is not very expensive and the results can tell you which foods she is allergic to. Yes, plastic can cause some allergy but only on the chin usually.
