Answer by Kate
Hi well she could have an infection in that area that could require antibiotics from the vet.
or she may have worms or some other parasite inside or around the area that could also be causing the soreness.

to be honest she does needs to be properly diagnosed by a vet for you to be able to treat her properly and to cure the issue.

if you do go to the vet you could also ask for some diet advice as an over weight cat can suffer from health problems in the future.

best wishes and I hope the problem sorts itself out soon.

i have a maine coon cat which is already the largest pure bred cat breed...and he eats too much so both of those factors together causes him to be a very large fat cat. Because hes so big he has a hard time cleaning his rectum area. So after he poops he cant clean his butt and therefore poop gets stuck and dried in his hair. So he licks his bottom non stop all the time. Because hes overweight and cant clean himself properly he licks his bottom to the point where its red, blood and irritated. I know that this is my cats issues due to him being overweight and this may be your cats issues. But really at the end of the day seeing a vet is best
