Always something new with my boy I’m not quite sure what this is. This is AFTER two baths, one with Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo and scrubbing with a mit, he used j&j his whole life, he’s 2 years old now. Then when I noticed this, I made him sit with a prescription shampoo on for a bit then scrubbed him with a lufa mit. Still not coming off?!!? I’ve never had this happen to him before. He gets a bath once a month and abs loves his bath time. He eats a strict diet he’s been on his whole life. So I know it’s none of that.
BTW this is only on his stomach, under armpits and down his legs!
his back ears face neck, tail and outside thighs are all fine and normal!
The only thing I can think of is that I switched him to grass litter, i read on here that the worlds best cat litter because of the corn - causes yeast and clearly he was allergic to it bec his eyes would break out but it’s been about 3-4 months now on grass litter and eyes back to normal and his skin got back to normal, then just today I’m just noticing this, last week his skin was completely normal and this never has happened before. He has little dots like this on his paws forever and I thought it was just from pores and cat litter etc but now looks like it spread and I’m thinking it’s yeast but then It looks like dirt and some of the spots if I gently pinch it, it comes off like if a man got his hair cut and those little hairs that stick to your neck until they shower, but it won’t come off in the shower if you get close and it’s like embedded in his pores like black heads but it’s NOT black heads. Trust me, his chin has black heads these are clearly as close as them and they won’t pop like his black heads on his chin though so it’s different. It’s Super weird, has anyone else had this happen to them? I’m going to bring him to the vet this week for him. But in the mean time what shampoo do you use and what do you think this is? If you think yeast will you recommend a shampoo? Recommend for black heads shampoo? also I heard switching to ceramic or stainless steel could be better for black heads on his chin does anyone know which one it was? Sorry a lot of questions but hopefully can get some answers. I attached the prescription shampoo below

It does just look like clogged pores, to me. You can try Maleseb if you think it is yeast. But I think regular exfoliation will gradually help this. He may be sensitive to a soap, lotion, detergent...and changes there?

It looks like blackheads, blocked pores or hairs that can't come through.

The shampoo bottle you are using what is the expiry date?

I would ask a vet what shampoo to buy many use Malesb but your vet will tell you if this is right for this as it does not look yeasty.

The skin looks great, so I wouldn't want to introduce something to make teh skin bad.

Ask a vet, get on the right track, may not be an issue after all, a vet will know.
