Hello! I'm new to this community (and not an native English speaker so pardon my language mistakes). I have really bad skin problems with my kitty. This is my third sphynx but I've never seen anything like this before. The problem was there right away I guess. The baby was shaking his legs quite a bit. I didn't really think much of that first but then he started to get these small dark brown spots on his feet and tail. (He doesn't really like me touching his tail so it has to be sore...). First time the doctor said he has a little yeast on his feet but nothing more. The spots won't come off in a bath. His face is also covered in "dirt" every day even though I wipe it with a soft wet cloth every day. Now the spots were growing in number so the vet took another look at him. It's yeast she said (or some kind of fungus but didn't get the test results back yet). The vet recommended that we put him on a non-wheat diet and I try to wash him with Malaseb shampoo. I did this yesterday and the poor thing went completely nuts when the shampoo had to sit for ten minutes. Well, first everything looked great, the skin was soft and almost all that brown stuff was gone, but today... The kitty's whole skin has turned dry and flaky and dark brown and it's peeling away. What can I do? Can I put some lotion on him? Do I try to scratch some of the flaky parts off? I feel so bad for the kitty. Is the Malaseb supposed to work this way? I mean the vet told me it can dry the skin, but I never thought it could be this bad... And she also told me to do this twice a week, I really don't think his skin can handle that. I would be so grateful if any of you had any experience with this kind of situation. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures right now.
