Fortunately cats do not get as many skin conditions as dogs so they are much easier to diagnose and treat. They can be allergic reactions, fungus or infection.
Here is the most common with photos:

Ringworm can be recurrent and is treated with a topical fungicide or a vaccine shot.
miliary dermatitis can come from a food allergy or the bite of even ONE flea.This is treated with one cortesone shot or neosporen it is safe it he licks a bit.
Granuloma is also usually allergic in nature and can be treated cortesone or antibiotics or both.
There is also alopecia which is usually symmetrical and can be self inflicted:
A staph infection is also a possibility and can recur at times when the immune system is weakened temporarily.
Please look at the photos and let me know which best relates to your cats issues and I will be happy to discuss this further with you.

Based on these pictures it looks like ringworm. The lesions are red but not as severe as hot spots. I thought it sounded similar to the miliary dermatitis but it does not look like any of those pictures. Also the lesions are occurring primarily on the hind quarters of the cats and at the base of the tail.
Oh my, you must see a vet re this tomorrow.He will shine a black light and script meds if it s Ringworm. That is contagious to you - so be careful.
Please let me know the outcome.
