I thought it could be ring worm but I have 3 other cats no sign and its very contagious. He also sleeps with me and I don't have it or my husband

Yes I saw that.. looks like another ring coming up but if it were me I'd just use a fungicide creme. Ring worm is very contagious but also many people and animals have a strong enough immune system to fight it off. I'm not a Vet of course this is just my opinion but I'd treat as contagious anyway.

We rescued a girl years ago our 2 others Cats at the time and I got it, but hubby never did. My guess is the bump is a sebaceous cyst. After your vet check, please let us know what they said. Your information can help other members in the future.

Hi there I’m no authority what so ever but upon looking at the pic I would have said ring worm , but then there is a bigger lump by the side .. best option is to visit your vet

Sulfur, mineral oil, pine oil. Lotion that heals a wide range of things. It made Benji skin look 95 percent better .Almost there but he still has the lump

Thank you for sharing the nu stock info
Where do you Purchase nu stock?

Where is the lump ? Has Benjamin had any recent vaccination on that area?
My boy has a lump too I am keeping an eye on and will check with my vet during our next visit
I am hoping it's a fatty lipoma or possible a sebaceous cyst
Lumps are always tricky

Did the vet rule out ring worm? For the rash ?
Always best to get vets diagnosis to figure out what's going on -
Lately I swear I spend more time at the vets than my own doc

I wonder if it is a cyst that needs to be expressed?

@Mindy Kelley , he has it since I adopted him - I can gently palpate it all around between my fingers free floating
It's near his left leg side area

What side /area is the lump
How is The rash doing? Any changes to the lump?
