    My name is Anoud I’m a mum of two precious adult sphynx cats male and female.

    I live in a place where basically... there’s no sphynx cats and no one is interested in them so i was surprised as i was walking one day and saw my precious angel yoora ( female )
    I got my male shipped tho cause i couldn’t find a male in here at all ,

    Now unfortunately my baby over a month ago started having spots they were tiny but i still took her to the vet and it was no help .. suggested that i give her medicated baths which really wasn’t helpful it got bigger , i brought her back they gave me pills for allergies and after five days the spots were gone , two days later it came back even worse ! I’ve been contacting the vet and she’s been avoiding contacting me ever since so I really need help at least have an idea of what it might be ☹️

      Hi anoud, my kitty Binky has exactly the same spots as ur baby, they are so angry under the two front armpits, am in the process of changing her food! The vets first reaction was it be could be fleas or dust mites so I have sprayed my house! 2nd is an allergy to food so am mixing her applaws with purina at the minute but thinking of swapping to venison n pea science plan as she may allergic to poultry! If all fails n no difference I will be taking her to a dermatologist which is a bit expensive so trying to change the food first! I bought oatmeal shampoo on amazon to see if it would make the redness better,it’s coming tomorrow so ii let ya know!

        Hello Anoud and welcome to Sphynx Lair!!

        This is a wonderful community that is always here for Sphynx lovers! I'm happy we spoke on instagram earlier.

        Since the allergy medication worked initially to make the bumps go away, I think that maybe this is just another reaction?

        How often do you bathe her? Because with Almond, I use to wash him every other day and his skin started becoming irritated because he lacked the essentials oils that his skin produces. Now I bathe him once every two weeks (He doesn't use litter, so usually I think once a week is recommended because they get yucky from litter).

        Also, did you buy any new furniture or any new sheets or towels that are a different material? sometimes they can have reactions to environments. Or as @Staceyxxx said it may be from fleas or dust mites in the house.

        I would say try changing the food immediately to a hypoallergenic diet and see if that changes anything in a couple of days.

        Although it doesn't look like examples I've seen of bacterial/fungal skin infections, it may be that, so if you can find a new vet that will see you it would be best! (I have taken almond to a friend that is a dermatologist before to verify an allergy, a bit eccentric but it was helpful lol)

        I hope this helps, please keep us posted on how things go!

        <3

          I’ll be taking her to the vet today as soon as they open amd definitely will check on everything, i usually give her a bath once a week she gets dirty really quickly , I’ll try following what the new veteran tells me and surly will get my house sprayed to make sure now if I’m being honest i don’t really let my cats outside they only roam around the house so it’s most likely something in the house hopefully everything will be better soon

                    @Yoora welcome to sphynxlair for you Anoud and for your boy and girl. What are their names?

                    Looks like an allergy. Did you change something? Food, detergent, plants in your home?

                    Now I'm no vet so I don't know for sure of course. But it does look like the rash my boy Toa has. The vet did do biopies and found out he has Uticaria Pigmentosa. It's a skindisease thatncan be treatened with prednisone. You can take a lot at the thread "Toa has a rash - off to the vet" to see how the rash of my boy looks. I'll tag you in the thread so you can easily find it.

                        Hey guys ☹️.. yoora is currently at the vet she’s going to get biopies done later on the day ( it’s 2AM literally can’t sleep cause I’m so worried) it got soooo much worse like bleeding swelling very painful for her .. they want to make sure it’s not a genetic problem because if it is it’ll never go away I feel so bad ☹️, I’ll let her stay there after till the stitches are completely healed because i dont want do cause more skin problems because i don’t know what she’s allergic to yet .. thank you all ☹️

                            @Yoora Sending positive vibes to you and Yoora. Did you see my thread about my boy Toa who has Urticaria Pigmentosa? Remember, a sphynx can live where well with it! It needs some time to settle with the right meds and to figure out what is causing the flare ups.

                            Toa sents lots of cuddles to Yoora for the biopskes (pic is taken after the biopsies where done and he needed to wear this jumper so he couln't knibble out the stitches.

                              My previous girl was allergic to chicken. She got ear infections and puked all the time, no skin problems though. The vet said it could become a skin problem. It took us about 3 months of hypoallergenic food to come to this conclusion. Keeping fingers crossed and sending hugs to you! Keep us updated.

                                  Aww bless u n yoora, my god that’s a shame she couldn’t get her biopsies done! We Hav now changed binkys food to venison n pea hills prescription diet, vet said she has to eat nothing but that for 6 weeks, to see if it’s food related! Not seen a difference yet could be too soon! You n yoora get a wee rest, sending u love from Scotland! Xxxx

                                    Oh that's ashame. Did they give you ointment you can use on the rash for the coming months you can't give Yoora the meds? That's what they did for my boy Toa. The ointment helps to calm the rash down and not let it get infected. This way Yoora doesn't have to be bothered by the rash too much the coming month. Hope the biopsies can be done quick so you can start the treatment

                                      They didn’t giv eher anything i asked for something to soothe it for her but the vet said it’s god to just not do anything to make sure it stays there till it’s time for the biopsies. She’s home and well she’s playful and just being her usual self il Keep you guys posted !

                                        Yoora and Shadow are both gorgeous.

                                        My crew (Toa, Ross, Jade & Foxy) sent lots of cuddles and love from the Netherlands to Yoora and Shadow in Qatar!

                                                @Yoora very haply to hear the vet find out what is causing the rash! Hope the fungus and the ringworm will be gone soon with treatment.
                                                Oh and watch your own skin too. Humans can get infected by ringworm.
