Bumps under cat chin and around neck area.

by Jered
(Fort Wayne)

These bumps seem to release liquid but don't look to be bloody.

She does not scratch at them but enjoyed when I picked at them, while investigating.

Today she did not want me to look at them as much but they seem possibley to have spread.
There are about 5-10 bumps... can cats get posion ivy or sumac? I have that right now on me???

These are small bug bite size bumps.

I'm going to change up food possibley, since its a new food. I dont believe its the food tho.

She is indoor cat, so I dont think its bug bites... haha they almost seem like zits!

Any ideas will be great, if it gets worse she goes to the Vet.

well this is a poser. yes it does sound like either spots or perhaps heat bumps. If you have changed food recently it may have something to do with it so it is worth trying something else to see if the quality of the food can improve nutrition and general coat and skin condition.

But on the other hand they could be little bites from perhaps a gnat or even a flea, some cats can be allergic to flea bites (my cat is).

All you can do is change the food and keep an eye on the spots if they as you say spread or get worse then yes a trip to the vets is proabably the best answer.

best wishes Kate

i have herd that cats can get a form of acne around their chin area. perhaps this is what your cat has.
