Noticed a little rash on my little guy a couple days ago and it’s getting better but isn’t healed yet. I’ve noticed it one time before. My other sphynx does not have any skin issues so I’m thinking it’s not ringworm, they constantly cuddle and sleep together. Pickles my big guy thats fine does groom Ralph ( the one with the issue ) a lot during the day and they play fight and roughhouse all the time so I was hoping it was just a scratch or irritation from grooming. Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen anything like this before?
The cats live indoors and have never been outside.

My girl gets similar looking marks from scratching, she even had them when she came home. At the moment she’s all healed up, and I recently started rubbing her down with coconut oil before her baths. Might be something to try?

This is something great to have on hand. We use on cuts, scratches burns etc....

The great part is it is not toxic if ingested and you know how often cats groom themselves.

It does kinda look like a war wound (from play). Handsome kitties.

As long as it heals then it's not a big deal, but the only thing you have to be careful about is that it doesn't get infected. Vetericyn is good but even if you don't have it, use whatever you can to keep the area clean.
