|Oh yes, it's feline acne. Do you have plastic bowls? When Abbie had feline acne, it got so bad that we even had to have some of them lanced and cauterized. She was on several medicines, both oral and topical. Finally, a vet tech asked me about plastic bowls. Yes, I said, we had plastic water bowls and clay food bowls. She recommended that I switch to stainless steel. After a week or so, her acne was gone and never came back!
I would see a vet no matter what, but if you do use plastic bowls, I would switch now. Your kitty may need antibiotics, but switching to stainless will make it a faster process.
(There are other causes than plastic bowls, that's just what I usually think of since it was the cause of Abbie's acne.)
