i adopted a kitten a week ago, yesterday I noticed this area above his eye was loosing hair and red, also notice a small spot on his chin and the side of his lip. I took him to the vet today so they could take a culture and test for ringworm. But I'm wondering if it could be an allergy instead? When I adopted him last week the rescue didn't give me his current brand of food, so I got him something else and he has been eating that, maybe he is allergic? Also 3 days after I got him I brought him in to the vet and they put a topical flea med on him, later that day I accidentally petted him on that area and might have rubbed his face, wondering if that could be a cause too. Those are the only spots he has, and otherwise looks and acts very healthy. I am trying not to over react, I only had him tested for ringworm cause I got freaked out reading up on the internet lol. Here are some pictures. Thanks! Oh I was also thinking of it is ringworm, wouldn't I notice it on his front legs since he grooms his face with his front legs?
