Pimples and Acne In Cats

Cats can have pimples and acne, too. Many cat parents don’t realize that the small growths and bumps they find around their furball’s face and chin are actually skin breakouts that can persist and worsen over time. Pimples and acne can get infected without proper veterinary attention and treatment.

One of the most common causes of acne and pimples in cats is poor hygiene and sanitation. Pores of the skin can get clogged with dirt and dust, eventually paving the way for skin breakouts. Sometimes, they can get itchy and the cat may scratch them, making the situation worse. It can irritate and introduce pathogenic bacteria which can lead to infection. When pimples and acne are infected, there is usually redness, swelling, and pus may also be present. Bring your pet to your veterinary clinic for proper attention and treatment.
