Sending you tons of love and prayers that you're ok through the storm!!
We were okay, thank you so much! Portifoy got another skin infection and is back on steroids. The vet hasn't given much info on how to stop his outbreaks- it's as if he's allergic to everything. Even the flea meds I try hurt him.

Oh gosh, poor baby!! I don't think this has been mentioned, but it may be helpful if not as a cure but to ease the discomfort;

from @Mamanyt1953
use a wash of chilled chamomile tea. The nice thing about this is that is it antibacterial, anti fungal, and amazingly soothing for ALL skin irritations. Buy the tea bags from your grocer's coffee/tea aisle, and make sure it is ONLY chamomile, no blends (that will be right on the main label). I recommend the commercial bags because they are ALWAYS made with German Chamomile, and the English variety that is common in gardens is toxic to cats. Brew a cup, chill it in the fridge, and apply it with a clean cotton ball or similar.

Have you tried coconut oil or vitamin E?
