The crustiness sounds a lot like ringworm, which despite the name isn't
always in rings. It can be picked up in clinics, it is rather hard to get rid
of in that setting. If you have a black light (the glowing purple ones),
about 60% of ringworm will glow under it. You could try alternating an
antifungal (ie yeast infection cream) with the antibiotic and see if that
helps. There are also some good naturopathic herbs, black walnut is
one my ex used when he got ringworm (from a patient); but I would
consult a homeopathic vet before I gave them to a heart kitty. Make
sure you wash your hands well after touching it, ringworm is contagious
to humans and a real pain to get rid of. The vet can scrap it and give
you a firm diagnosis if it doesn't resolve as you would like!!
