Hi this is Juno she’s my 7month old Sphinx! Recently she got these spots on her arms and chest and it seems a bit flakey. I don’t know if she spends the day sunbathing when I’m at work but could that be it ? She has a vet appointment but do you guys have any home remedies ? Should I try a warm wet cloth and olive oil? Or coconut oil? Here’s some pics below

@AlbertoMp3 ,does your baby do alot of sunbathing? change of litter, use scented litter/change of foods recently? I personally do not put olive oil or coconut oil on skin may clog pores and get a reaction. recently read online coconut oil not recommended. I like hylyt shampoo, conditioning, soap free, hypoallergenic easy rinse.

vet may do a skin scraping to rule out yeast, bacterial.

@AlbertoMp3 here is my example of over sunbathing on my adoptee , pic from day I got him. I put a cat tree in non sunny window, some members put up window film tint. this all cleared up on its own in a few months. he was vet checked.

glad you have a vet check for peace of mind , early intervention/diagnosis is best
