Hey everyone, I thought I would post my story with my cat Mr Bigglesworth, as I hope it may help others, or that someone can help me! My baby has always had perfect skin. Over the course of two weeks he has developed a very SEVERE skin issue and has been to the vet multiple time. It started out with a few sores on his body which would scab up and peel off. However over the course of two weeks he developed global lesions (red and black) with crusting, and a dark brown crusty rash down his neck, chest and face. Over the course of two weeks I have searched high and low to find a story like mine. Nothing seemed to match. He has been on convenia (antibiotic injections), and malaseb baths. He cannot have steroids unless absolutely necessary due to hcm. I went to a dermatologist a couple of days ago and a skin biopsy has been performed. The dermatologist thinks either urticaria pigmentosa or autoimmune disease. Treatment at the moment has to be withheld till a definitive diagnosis, as the wrong treatment may set him back further (except for ABs). We hear the results tomorrow - a nervous wait!! I will upload some photos. The photos will show you what he was like just before the problem started (2 weeks ago), then at the beginning, during and now. It's horrible to look at. I can't stand it! I am committed to fixing my baby boy though!!
