Hi Everyone!

I thought these were oil stains but I just gave him a bath and they are still there.

Just wondering if anyone knows what they could be?

Thank you!!

Is it just the one spot? Honestly it just looks like pigmentation to me.

agree it could be normal pigmentation we often see on darker sphynx, my dark boys have pigmentation areas. do you use exfoliating gloves with baths?

how old is your baby? some develop color changes too.

I haven't used exfoliating gloves as I thought they would be too rough. Would you recommend using them? He is 8 Months!

@mintysphynx , I started using exfoliating gloves when it was recommended to me many years ago. @Catzzzmeow in previous posts wrote swears by exfoliating gloves.

Oh yes the gloves are great. You just rub gently and massage with them with soapy water hands.
