Lip sores in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Lip sores in cats


Avatar f tn About two months ago we noticed a bump on our young female Bombay cats lip. We took her to the vet, they said three options; kitty acne, hemotobin, or some other really long word that requires steroid treatment. We took her home for observation, the lump went away within two weeks, so we thought hemotobin. Now it's back and bigger, it seems there are a few small bumps around the large one, with red coloration to it. I have seen posts saying no plastic dishes, but we have glass and metal.
Avatar n tn For the past 10 years I have had really sensitive lips and have only been able to use one type of lip balm. As anything else - lip sticks of glosses give me little sores on my lips and cause them to puff up and get little scabs and peel contantly - i also get dry patches under my eyes and eye lids. When I visited a doctor they told me I may have an allergy to nail polish and an ingrediant in lip glosses/balms its also happens when I were nail polish.
Avatar n tn He just had to get a shot last week b/c he had sores all over his belly from biting and scratching. Now he has a fat bottom lip. He had the same thing in February, got a shot and it went away. I read that fish based foods can cause allergies. He only eats chicken flavored food but I had just given him a salmon flavored treat a day or so before the lip flare up. Anyway, I know that the vet will not want to give him another steroid shot so soon after the other one.

Avatar f tn Within 3 days of stopping 2 separate round of steroids (which did help all the allergy symptoms and swelling), my swollen sensitive eyes would start up again and then my mouth broke out in terrible cold sores. I've had larger ones on my bottom lip since a child. But these are completely different. Tiny little blisters along my top lip and the skin around my lips. Gross.
Avatar m tn something in the enviroment, such as dust, pollen, household cleaners, sprays....etc. all can cause allergic reactions in cats the same as it can in people except with cats the response is USUALLY skin itch or eruptions....not sneezing and red eyes like with humans. I hope this answers your question. this type of allergy is most often FOOD RELATED. Dry food IS NOT necessary for clean teeth and health...NOT at all.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar f tn (I did clean the inside of each sore really well before using tea tree) I am guessing tons of folks on this thread use these ointments trying to control infection of small sores that turn into big sores over time, it's the ointment in my case. I had to share this once I realized what my problem was. Good luck everyone!
Avatar n tn The mouth is one of the more common places where autoimmune disease is manifested. When it causes sores in the mouth, it's called stomatitis. Stomatitis is especially dangerous because it causes periodontal disease, which may lead to organ failure. Stomatitis can sometimes be managed with antibiotics to prevent infection, or oral steroids to reduce inflammation. Ultimately, most stomatitis patients will need to have their teeth removed.
Avatar n tn I've tried dabbing it with peroxide because I truly thought maybe the puppy hurt her, but now I'm wondering if it might be something else??? Can cats get mouth sores? She's eating normally, is affectionate, & isn't acting like she's in pain, but the sore looks like it would be painful to me. What should I do? Thanks for any advice you might offer!
Avatar m tn I thought it might be the new cat nip toys i got him so i took them away about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks ago but the sores have spread. It started with a pink lower lip and it was swollen. The inside of his top right cheek was very swollen with little ulcers on the inside but the swelling has gone down since then. There are still scabs along the top rim of the lip. However There are new sores and scabs in the left corner of his mouth.
Avatar n tn Mouth and throat ulcers in cats are very much like cold sores in humans and they are caused by the same thing...alergies or stress. Unfortunately, there are no effective treatments to prevent them other than to eliminate the cause.
626498 tn?1221984489 I had never heard of it before he had it. He had a fever and sores in his mouth and throat. He was miserable for about 5 days and we don't even live on a farm. If you have not already contacted your pediatrician I wouldn't wait.

Avatar f tn I have a 5 year old black cat (believed to be part tabby) with constant lesions on his inner front legs, neck, tummy as well back inner legs. He also has a swollen lip. This has been going on for at least two years, and we have taken him to numerous vets around my area (mississauga). This has been extremely costly, they have done biopsies, taken blood numerous times and given him shots of a certain type of steroid.
Avatar m tn The Pegasys Medication Guide does list your symptom possible "Body Organ Problems" under "Skin Rash": (red or inflamed eyes, like "pink eye")... it does say that if you develop the rash with fever, blisters or sores in the eye, you should call your doctor right away. Hope it's not too bad.
Avatar n tn Sores often look like they have been coated with honey or brown sugar. The sores usually increase in size and number. Sores may be as small as a pimple or larger than a coin. It is VERY IMPORTANT to practice GOOD HYGIENE. PROPER hand washing REALLY IS IMPERATIVE in preventing the spread of this infection. By proper, I mean washing with sudsy soap and warm water and making sure to wash well between each finger, fingertips, and going under nails with an orange stick.
Avatar n tn So about a week or two after I made my post in October, the tiny bumps went away. About the same time I made the post I began taking daily L-lysine pills (on the back of the supplement bottle, it says that they help with skin & lip health. My mother-in-law uses them for cold sores, she says the L-lysine helps dry them out faster), idk if that helped my lips heal faster, or whatever it was just out ran its course though.
Avatar m tn About two weeks ago, i found two round (looks like cigarette burns- don't smoke, nor does anyone in my home) sores on the back of my left calf. They are healing but still...what the heck? Then about five days I woke up with a two inch scratch, straight down my right cheek, I thought I did it in my sleep. Next day there was a scratch on my right forearm and so i clipped and filed my relatively short nails waaaay down and woke up this morning with a horizontal scratch on my chin!
Avatar dr m tn One of the most important reasons to breathe through your nose is because of a gas called nitric oxide that's made by your nose and sinus mucous membranes. This gas is produced in small amounts, but when inhaled into the lungs, significantly enhances your lung's capacity to absorb oxygen. Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent.
681148 tn?1437665191 Thanks for the reply. The vet said that cats are often allergic to fish. I was thinking that because animals and people both tend to crave the things they're allergic to that this was a strong possibility, because Akira loves salmon. There is also a likelihood that there is something in the environment in my apartment, like dust or something, that is bothering Akira, because my allergies have been really bothering me a lot, too. I'm trying to narrow this down, too.
394687 tn?1290924440 That's what we get on our e-coupn ride...having fun yet? I'm having a post party at my place in CA when this is over for us and I'm buying cases of champage and tons of awesome food (and Jim will be our entertainment - his wings are still intact :-) AND your all isn't that a great my previous "I will get out of this wheelchair" one.
Avatar m tn Let whatever is in your nose and sinuses drain slowly out of your nostrils, while the hot water of the shower falls on your chest. Put a finger across your top lip if you don’t like the salty water getting in your mouth. After about 20 seconds, snort inward, so the mucus goes into your throat, then do some hawking, and spit it out of your mouth. Repeat once or twice. Then, close one nostril, and blow out the open nostril as slowly and gently as you can.
Avatar m tn 1 IGG blood test that came up POSITIVE for HSV1 2 NEGATIVE swabs for HSV1 and HSV2 in the genital area on new red bumps/sores 1 POSITIVE swab for HSV1 on my right finger 1 urologist who diagnosed me with Prostatitis.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar f tn Al lot of ACAI berry suppliments have various herbs in them also. So it could from anything in the formula. I would stick to the real thing. The only problem is that ACAI Berry juice costs about $40 a bottle. But you are only supposed to drink 2 ounces in the morning and an ounce at night.
Avatar m tn My joints hurt, my lower back, my wrists, my neck very very bad. I'm fatigued throughout the day. I get cold sores on my lip every other month sometimes.....always thought they were from stress though. Thats all I can think of right now but again, the pains move around and not all happen every day. I have another follow up with my doctor on the 18th of February to go over some of the new things.
Avatar n tn I also have had Pneumonia once before that took a while to clear and now seem to have some sort of sinus/mucus problem and occasionally experience a slight shortness of breath, again these may not be related and some may be down to the fact i am not in the best shape I could be in but I do not drink or smoke etc. I do think the bottom line is seeing my Doctor in the vain hope whoever I see will show some kind of interest and point me in the right direction so a diagnosis can be reached.
Avatar m tn I'm 17 years old, the typical high school teen.I have the compulsion of looking in the mirror and standing there for hours looking at every pore on my face then picking. Then it over turned to my whole body, its gotten way worst since I begun doing this since 1 1/2 years ago.
