little red dots in front of my cats ears

by Sean
(San Diego)

hi, my cat is a little over a year old, and shes been fine. she has been neutered, and had a few different shots but mainly shes indoor. she had fleas but we got rid of them with frontline. time passed and she seemed fine, now she has small red dots like a scab or tiny rash/ irritation right in the front of her ear between her eye and ear( u no that little baldish area in between). i noticed she has been a little quieter lately, but that might have nothing to do with it. i read it could be a food allergy, or stress. im really poor but i will find the money for the vet, trust me, i just wanna no if its something i should be worried about.

Hi well it is difficult to say exactly what could be causing it. It may be an allergy but because it is near the ears i am more inclined to say it may have something to do with ear mites. they are very difficult to see and he may be scratching the area which is making the little red blood spots and wearing the fur off. I have a web page about ear mites here for your information

If you are not sure then your only answer is a trip to the vets but it may be worth treating him for ear mites to see if the problem eases.

best wishes Kate
