My cat has a patch of acne on his face and it's spreading. He has had feline acne once before and me scrubbing off the blackheads with a towel plus some pyoben gel from the vet cleared it up. when he had it before, he got a little bald in the area where the acne was (one side of his face) but it grew right back when the acne went away. But this time, the patch of acne keeps spreading no matter what i do (i'm still trying to wipe the blackheads off and using pyoben gel) and also the fur has started to fall out in clumps on his face where the acne is! he scratches it and it just flies off his face...it's really kind of scary. Is this normal for feline acne? I'm calling the vet tomorrow. I thought some loss of fur was normal since that happened the last time he had acne but it's getting really bad - a quarter of his face is practically bald and the acne isn't getting better and the fur is not growing back....ideas on what to do? Also maybe it's not acne and it was misdiagnosed last time??
