Cat Licks and Pulls Out Hair in the Summer?

My cat licks and pulls out her fur only in the summer. She is an inside cat. She does this till she is almost bald and bleeding; what can I do? I have tried giving her Benadryl, antibiotics, and using medicated powder. The vet said it is only a skin irritation, but it happens every year only in the summer. It looks very painful and if not bleeding, it is oozing. The rest of the year her fur is beautiful. She is albino and gorgeous most of the time.

Change your Veterinarian and brush / comb her daily during the summer months when she is shedding her coat. Is she laying in front of glass door with hot sun on her.? Good luck.

Time for a new vet. He obviously doesn't know what's wrong with your kitty, so there's nothing more he can do for you. Try different vets, until you find one who can help your cat--help is out there. :)
