Just like humans, cats can have problems with their skin as
well. It is often difficult to diagnose some of the skin problems, so you may
need to see your vet. Listed below are some of the common cat skin diseases and
Contact Dermatitis – This is the least common of all skin
disorders. It is usually caused when a cat comes into contact with a particular
substance. This can be an allergic reaction or an irritation to the substance.
It can be treated with steroids and antibiotics.
Feline Acne – Yes, Fluffy can have acne problems as well.
This occurs in cats of all ages. It is typically found around the chin and
mouth. It is caused by when your cat rubs on surfaces to mark his territory.
Over time, this will result in greasy patches and cause the acne. This can be
treated with an antibiotic soap or a topical solution.

conditions. This is caused when the cat’s skin gets hypersensitive or allergic

biting of the fur. First and foremost, eliminate fleas from your cat’s
environment and prevent future manifestations from occurring. Antihistamines
