My little cat has scratched all of the fur off her nose. She has ear mites that keep coming back and she scratched all of the fur off her ears when they were bad. Her nose looks so raw and awful. Her diet hasn’t changed. Any ideas what it is? And how to make it better?

I would consult your veterinarian. Without an examination, it is impossible to give a diagnosis, much less treatment options. Likely you are dealing with some sort of allergy.
