My cat has fur loss and its a nickel-sized pink round skin or a scab or something. Can you tell me what it is? Its a little scabby on the sides and it is spreading. No other areas are like that. Its a black fured cat and a little white and its on the white fur... Well a dog did nip her on the neck but would it be the same thing?

I responded to your other post on the same subject. Can you describe what it looks like a little more. Is it pink b/c the skin is pink, or is it irritate? Is the skin normal looking underneath or scabby? Are there any other areas of fur loss?

It may be a skin condition that cat, especially white, are prone to. One of my boys had it. The vet said basically his little immune system was in overdrive. So, their skins feels irratated to them, and they scratch and scratch and make sores, and scratch the hair off. One shor of cortizone cleared it up.

I hope you find out what it is and he's feeling better reallt soon.

It sounds to me like it might be ringworm. Look up some pictures of ringworm on the internet and see if it looks like those. If it does you treat it with program. Give your cat double the normal monthly dose of program right after a meal. It has to be done after they eat or it wont work right. If it isn't ringworm it could be an allergic reaction or some other skin problem. You might need to go to the vet.

Cortisone is a steroid, it is used to treat allergies.
