Default Need help with cat skin problem

Hi all,

This is my first time posting to this news group.

Our family cat of 13 years (100% indoor cat). has developed an unusual skin
condition.

Small bumps occur on her inner and outer ear and around her eyes. They
eventually rupture and form a small red crust or spot of blood.

These eruptions do not occur anywhere else on her body and they are not
itchy.

Presently she is on antibiotics (5days so far) and no change.

I can post a link to photos if needed.

All help/input/suggestions are welcome!

Thanks Again
Philip Janet & Bronte (cat)

Can your vet do a scraping for skin mites?

Here are photos:

the small bumps are in her ears and above and below her eyes. They are
nowhere else on her body.

The 5 days of antibiotics do not seem to be working.

Any ideas?

The small white bumps enlarge and erupt over a few days.

Thanks

To be honest, I cannot see them really. I think the antibiotics are probably
to stop an infection from happening if they burst. You might see a feline
specialist. Skin problems are hard. I wonder if it is an allergy to
something stirred up right now. Has your summer been unusual? Ours has and
there are many different things stirred up in it. Or, do you have anything
new around? Did you clean the carpets at all? There may be a physical
irritant.

It sort of looks like impetigo -- like kids get. I wonder if a drying
agent would help? MLB
