Hey there,

So I have a 5 year old Sphynx male who has recently had brown spots appearing on him within the last month. They are not raised and he does not go outside.

Does anybody have an idea of what this is?
I have attached pictures of the spots.

We have this come up rather frequently. Most of the time it ends up just being normal pigmentation changes. But sometimes it turns out to be yeast. Might ask your vet to do a skin scraping to be sure. Maleseb shampoo is a great non prescription treatment if it is yeast.

I’ve never found out why or what caused it. I’m gonna book him into see a vet soon just to be sure. If you find out any information for what it might be or how to get rid of it, please do let me know :)
