Hi all,

Any help would be much appreciated! My lovely boy Remy has come up with a lot of white spots around the sides and back of his neck and a few onto his front arms... I think it may be feline acne as he has always had a few blackheads on his chin but he absolutely hates to be washed so have struggled to keep it as clean as it should be. Also these spots look completely different to the blackheads, have attached a few pictures.
Any advice on what it might be and how to clear it up would be appreciated, thank you!

I would ask the vet / dermo what they are and to prescribe shampoo and topical treatment.

That’s great you found a shampoo that agrees with your baby’s skin.

He is a lovely little one

we’ve always struggled with bath time as I don’t have a bath tub, and he absolutely hates being wet, has done since being a kitten ‍♀️ I found a large rubber tub that I now fill in the shower cubicle, he does just jump straight out but is enclosed in the cubicle. I use a shampoo that I found on Amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07T8S7FH7?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image

have always really struggled to find sphynx specific shampoo in the UK and this seems to do the job really well, without making his skin oilier

rather than putting him back in the tub again and again I use a flannel to give him a rub down with the shampoo and use a cup to rinse him off with water from the tub. Hope this helps!

Thanks rinsing the shampoo off will prevent pores from blocking and skin rashes from any residue you could try a baby bath I got mine from Ikea.
