Wondering if anyone could help me to know what this is my cat has had this for a week or so now and it doesn’t seem to bother him but just debating on taking him to the vet or not it seems to be greasy and he’s lost hair there and it looks like there’s some sort of scab (black dots) i did think fleas but they aren’t moving and he’s had his flea and worm treatment recently, thank you

It looks like acne. You can use a flea comb to get a lot of the black specks off. Clean the chin with warm soapy water or something like chlorhexadine.

It does look like acne. You can get the wipes from the Vet. I think they are difficult to find on line.

Geoffrey had it. I took away all plastic eating containers; tried the Vet's wipes, did not work well, so I ordered some STri-dex pads off of Amazon.

What was amazing.. as soon as I stopped stressing him; it disappeared.
