Sorry, I lost you there. I'm trying to figure out how to show you the picture... is there an email I send a photo to?
OK, we use glass bowls and plates for his food. His symptoms are not in line with feline acne at all.
He has not had allergy testing in the past but it is very obvious that he has incredible food allergies. Some foods only take him 24 hours to show up as he itches his face and causes open wounds. This is different. If I can send you the picture you would see, his coat is amazing except for this one spot on his chin and neck.
This is what I know. He had a burr on his chin about a week and a half two weeks ago. If we do not get to them right away, he rips them out. He had a burr one morning that he began to rip out. We cut it away, it is gone. There was some hair loss and redness. Since then he has been itching his chin and there are open sores. He has licked all of the hair off of his neck. We finally found a food that cleared up his face during this time, his face looks better than it has in months but now his neck looks really bad, it is always something with him.
His new food we began about 2 weeks ago, it agrees with his face more than any food we've had in a long time. He is on Taste of the Wild Canyon River Trout and Smoked Salmon Grain Free. Foods with duck and chicken, even of the grain free variety were causing massive issues. He has not been on medication this round by hydrocortisone shots in the past have not worked. If I apply anything to the neck the itching and licking worsen terribly.
As you can see he has an amazing coat... no mange, fleas, mites, ringworm, acne... :(
