Thank you for the additional information. Now I'd like to see what this skin area looks like. Can you upload a photo of it to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.There's a rare idiopathic (unknown cause) ulcerative dermatosis seen in cats occurring mainly on the back of the neck or between the should blades. Cats will aggressively self-mutilate it. When cats don't respond to conservative therapy - corticosteroids such as the prednisone, mainly - surgical resection of the area is considered.
