There are several possibilities for the redness. It could be she reacted to a chemical or something she stuck her face into or has an allergy to, she could have an ear infection and be scratching at her face, she could have mites on her face (Feline Scabies), as a Siamese she could be having an autoimmune reaction, etc. Does she go outside at all? Do you have any other cats in the household? Where in the country are you located? Has she had allergies before? How long has it been going on? Has she ever been tested for FIV? Sorry, that's a lot of questions, but it would help me narrow down what's going on and what can be done. Likely, she will need to be seen for treatment...

Im sorry but your answer does not help me. Please reimburse $15 to my account because obviously I have to take her to a local vet as soon as I can afford.
