    I’m always reading forums on here to answer my questions and it’s my first time posting on here.
    I have a 10 month old male sphynx! His name is Gollum.
    I was bathing him this morning and noticed these marks on his neck. They look like a cluster of blisters they’re a little yellowish.
    It didn’t seem to bother him, I washed it with a warm cloth & it didn’t even phase him.
    He didn’t have it last night, so it popped up overnight.
    He’s eating and drinking very little this morning, as well as just excessively sleeping which isn’t normal since he’s very active throughout the day.
    I took him to the vet, and they couldn’t tell me what it was they did remove it to run some tests on it. But I figured I’d try to see if anyone knows anything about it or maybe has experienced it.

      Welcome to Sphynxlair. Gosh these monkeys certainly keep us on our toes. They heal fast, give it a couple of days and it will most likely be gone. I highly recommend buying this [​IMG]

      You can get on Amazon and most pet supply stores it is great for many skin irritations. I have even used on myself.

            Welcome to sphynxlair!
            Is it possible the blister is caused by the sweater he's using? Maybe it's irritating him? The blister seems to be on the edge of the sweater or not? Like @Catzzzmeow said it's probably gone in a few days. I habe the vetericyn spray at home to and it works well

              They honestly didn’t say much, they gave me something to clean it with is all. Just said to put neosporin on it for now.
              She couldn’t tell me what it was, I have to wait a week for the test results to come back.
              It’s red and scabbing now since they took it off.
              He hasn’t been doing anything but sleeping and won’t leave the room.
              I took his clothing off just in case that was bothering him.
              I’m just kind of at a loss on what to do
