The picture doesn't appear to be working.
I've now tried washing them in a watered down solution of betadine to get the crusty stuff off, then dabbed betadine straight onto them and applied filtabac over top. It seems to have improved them slightly, but I am still looking for ideas on what they might be, and the best way to go about treating them.
I think you've done exactly what I would do at this point. Now I would just leave them and hopefully they will just dry out and go away. I have only seem melamonas under the tail on a grey, never on their head, not to say they don't get them, just that I have never seen them. Since they are weeping I would think it more likely that they are insect irritations. I can see your pic!
This might seem a bit odd of a question. Does she take her feed from a plastic pail/tub?
Our cat, Skip was prone to "spots" on his face, when I took him to the vet, she said not to feed him from plastic bowls, as a type of bacteria formed on the plastic that resulted in a form of acne in cats and dogs.
I don't know that it is the same sort of spotting/crusting acne thing the cat had, but you never know.
Also, honey & olive oil, mixed in together, make a superior natural antibiotic healing ointment....also might be worth a try.....Good Luck.
Thanks for that, the picture is working for me now too :D It appears they are starting to heal, but two more have now appeared down near her mouth :o( I am now pretty much certain that they are insect bites though.
Yes, she does eat out a kind of plastic/rubber bucket, so perhaps I should try to find something else to use?
