We adopted a kitty about 2 months ago. The kids wanted to get her a pretty collar, big mistake. I noticed she kept scratching so I took it off of her. But she now has two spots on her neck, I'm assuming she caused them with all of the scratching she was doing. They are probably slightly smaller than a dime. I have been using peroxide and neosporin on them for several days now. They have improved slightly, but not enough to make me happy. Unfortunately I can't take her to the vet until the end of next week unless it becomes an emergency. Any suggestions to anything else I could use to help clear these up. TIA

Thank you! They are still occasionally weepy, so maybe I'll just use the peroxide sparingly. I have a candula cream I made with candula infused olive oil, vit e, beeswax and lavender EO. Would that be safe to use? She can't lick that area very well, so I don't think she would be able to injest very much of it?
