Thank you for your question. My name is***** I'd like to assist you today. Is there a photo you could submit of your cats nose? Many skin things are difficult to diagnose without seeing what the issue looks like. Mites on the nose are not a common problem. It could be a local infection though. If you are able to submit a photo, it would be very helpful. You can attach it right in this chat

Ok, I can take a look any time it is submitted. That'd be great. What time zone are you? I am central.
