    Is this the only area? If not please share which areas you are seeing this. Are any of the spots raised? Is there any redness at all and is your baby itching? If more spots that's here, try to add more pics.

    BTW, welcome to Sphynxlair!

    That is not the only area! There are some on her tummy, back and tails. It seems to be growing more and more. The spots are not raised, red or itchy.

    Thank you ! I've tried a couple shampoos and wipes but nothing will take it off. I keep hearing about D'grease! Does it really work?

    it works for ours .
    If nothing helps on it, maybe they are sun spots ? Maybe take your baby to the Vet or even skin specialist ( we have a skin specialist here near by ) and have that looked at . Maybe its not even dirt you know ? I am not trying to make you frightened , they do sometimes get skin spots that are harmless .

    Those spots do not look like dirt to me. We often see darker Sphynx can have get darker pigmentation in many areas. You might take to vet for a skin scrape to be confirmed to not be fungal or yeast infection etc.
    . Happy to hear not red, raised or itchy. Here is a link about skin conditions that might help.

      Thank you! I will take her to the vet to get her checked out! She gets into everything and anything so i figured it was dirt but she likes to sit in the sun a lot as well. Here are two better pictures of her leg. This is the worst area

        Welcome to sphynxlair good to have you.
        Always best to see your Vet. But, it looks like pigmentation
        to me. Sun, brings it out more, plus it's part of their coloring, sometimes.

          • Pig
          • Venus Fly trap
          • Black Sphynx
          • Skull head
          As the others have mentioned, It appears to be pigmentation, but a vet check never hurts. :)
