Cats get many of the same skin conditions that people get, often causing itching and irritation. Cats can be susceptible to acne, bacterial infections such as folliculitis, yeast infections, ringworm, shedding, dermatitis, and more.

He or she may prescribe topical or oral medications to help treat whatever condition is afflicting your feline.
