I don't think so...Walter still had them when he was 2. They went away a few months after he was neutered, though. I kinda miss squeezing blackheads a little bit. Maggie was just spayed recently, right?
The Sphynx's I know that have them a lot more, are the ones that are still intact. My 4 are all altered, and rarely ever have blackheads...I think hormones must have a lot to do with their oil production.
You can buy Omega 3 supplements for kitties! Just go to your local health food store and ask for Omega 3 Feline formula. the dose instruction is on the bottle according to your kitties weight. This will help with the many little black heads they get on the back of their tails. As for the chin... it will improve that too.
Omega 3 does wonders for our skin and theirs!!
we just got our baby boy yesterday and while giving him a bath today i noticed he had tons on his chin i was in shock to see he had blackheads lol but im guessing this is normal and something i will come into contact with often ?
im going to try the omega 3s and see if that works as for his body he has none only on his chin
Make sure you arent using plastic dishes cause that can cause chin acne.
I pop the blackheads, chin and tail area...and that helps.
For the tail I scrub in the bath with a facecloth, to exfoliate a little.
You can also clean the affected area with an antibacterial soap twice a day but have to make sure to rinse. Use something like hibitaine or hibicleanse.
Vito gets them on his tail but they are usually so small I dont bother to pick at them, plus he doesnt like it.
He does have a giant pore on his chest that is always clogged. I squeeze the junk out of it almost every day. I have to get it when he is sleepy otherwise he wont let me at it. Kind of gross. I think he has a few black heads on his chin but he wont let me at them either. I just make sure I give a good scrub when he gets his bath.
Hi my girls do not get blackheads but my Chinese Cresred do and i use plain yorgurt and honey on them . Here is what I do i put some yorgurt in a bowl and let is set to reach room temp and i add a spoonful of honey . then i put it on the area with blackheads for about 3 to 5 minutes and bath them . The blackheads come off in the bath and the ones that do not just pop right out with no effort at all. I like this because if they lick it, it will not hurt them . Thanks
