Hi, It's been a few month that I keep noticing black bits underneath my cats chin. At first it wasn't a lot, but its getting a bit more lately. When I touch them they fall off. I have noticed a bumpy spot too and when i touched it today some discharge was released.
I have been washing his chin twice a day with salty warm water, is there any thing to be worried about? He does eat and drinks as normal. I think I am more worried about this than him. he doesn't seem bothered . thanks. by aida (Cardiff, UK)

Hi, Well there are several possibilities.
Hope this gives you a few ideas. But of course if the condition gets worse, than a visit to your vets is the best option.
best wishes Kate
Could be acne! by: Liz
Some cats get feline acne too, especially males because they have a tendency to be a tad more sloppy when it comes to grooming. If the bits run red after you put water on them then they are probably flea dirt

It's probably the type of food you're feeding her. (Dry food?) It's not a big deal, just clean them off.:)
Thank Kate, he just had worming tablets, and also flee drops, i ve changed his food bowel to not plastic bowels now hoping that help .:)
