Hello! I can’t seem to get my baby clean and was hoping somebody could help! I use baby shampoo and have tried coconut oil and a loofah as well and nothing seems to get him as clean as he was when I got him. I don’t know what I am doing wrong but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Also I should add that the vet thinks it’s pigmentation but I just don’t think it is! It happened so suddenly.. it’s also slightly dry and scaly under his arms.. he’s not very tolerant of baths so it’s already difficult to bathe him. He acts like I’m hurting him

It does kinda look like pigmentation to me

The only other thought I have is are you rinsing really well?

@SphynxDracula Curious if he sunbathes a lot ? My adoptee batman came to me with diagnosed pigmentation
Along the same leg flank area .
I put a cat tree in indirect light , bathed with Hylt shampoo and exfoliating gloves . He hates spa day too .
In several months it went away on it's own. Here is the gotcha day pigmentation pic

My darker sphnyx do have the typical freckles

Head smooches sent
