Hi

Please see picture attached of nellys red patch. This has appeared in the last 24 hours, no changes of food / not bathed since Sunday. It’s rough to touch and look ms like it’s getting redder.
She’s in no discomfort isn’t trying to itch it any ideas? Am I worrying too much? First time sphynx mum :(

@nakednelly , Awh , hopefully me,bears can chime in with their experiences you can share with your vet

Do you think she has rubbed on anything ? Walked up against or lay something warm ?
Floor heat registers etc ?
Sphynx Skin Conditions

Does she have any other areas like this developing ?
We have seen some kitties with ringworm that the vet can check with a light
@Catzzzmeow , any suggestions ? Thoughts?

Ps love your adorable avatar pic! What a cutie!
I hope you get this resolved
Will be following for updates

Thankyou for your reply! It has developed and it is more raised off the skin than earlier this afternoon. My first thought was it looks like a burn maybe from a radiator as ours do get really hot. But it isn’t filled with anything there’s no water or puss inside just red inflammad skin. She has no other areas like this.
Are sphynx prone to eczema? I know contact dermitis is a thing but from the pictures it doesn’t look like it :(
I’m just really worried about her. Will keep you updated .

Agree looks like they have a rub burn. Our kitten had one in the same area and I think from the cat tree and possibly slipping down on it. Keep an eye on it. They heal fast. I highly recommend buying this product


It is great for burns, scrapes, cuts etc and is not toxic if ingested.

Is there a way to kitty proof the radiator ? I am omly familiar with the plastic deflectors for floor registers I was finding my kitties sitting on

Perhaps members can chime in with radiator kitty proofing tips ?
