Feline acne is a skin affliction very much like that in humans. There is an appearance of blackheads, or comedones, anywhere on the skin but particularly on the chin and lips. There is no veterinary explanation or resolution for this condition. However, if you use a system of natural cat health care, then it is possible to resolve the problem completely.
Often hair loss accompanies feline acne. Occasionally, the comedones can become little abscesses, which break open and form crusts.
Feline acne is a sign of a struggling immune system. It can occur on its own or accompany any other health problem.
Veterinary diagnosis will be from testing a skin scraping and with a biopsy. Veterinary treatment is to suppress the symptoms. This may be with antibiotics, either orally or topically, and shampooing your cat with antiseborrheic shampoo. In some circumstances, corticosteroids may be used.
None of these conditions consider the cause of the problem. All of them will further suppress the immune system and they are also liver toxic. Shampooing your cat is rarely welcomed by any self respecting cat and is an unnecessary procedure unless to remove a substance which will harm your cat.
Let’s consider the role of the skin as far as the overall health of the body is concerned. The skin is the least important organ of the body. It can support a heavy toxic unload without affecting much except the appearance. Dumping an internal toxic load must gain favour with any thinking person. It’s better out than in!
If you suppress the body’s innate ability to heal itself, then you are furthering this toxic load, you are creating more health problems for your cat in the not too distant future.
The best way to successfully treat feline acne is to encourage this toxic dumping and to stop further toxin intake.
Commercial cat food is one of the most common sources of toxins in your cat. The food quality is poor and there are many chemicals added to flavour, to colour, to improve the texture and odour, to keep it on the shelf indefinitely, to stimulate the appetite, to attempt to address the shortfall of nutrients, and so on. The price tag makes little difference.
Another source of toxins are veterinary medications, including vaccinations. All suppress the immune system. All are liver toxic.
So what can you do? What are the alternatives? Using a system of natural cat health care covers both the feeding and the health care. Natural cat health care stimulates the immune system. There are no toxic side effects. You can expect your cat to lead a long and healthy life.
