Also, cats have appendages on their skin such as sweat glands, hair and nails. Therefore, when the skin disease occurs, it will have many effects on the cat's health.

Cat skin moss disease
Dermodermosis, the most common skin disease in cats, is a fungal infection. It is mainly spread by contact. Anything contaminated with infected hair can cause transmission of infection (such as combs, towels, etc.), so cats are likely to be infected from combs in pet grooming shops, and the fungal disease can also be transmitted to humans. So owners should also be aware of their own safety and wear gloves when handling sick cats to avoid infection.
Infected cats typically present with depilatory and scaly lesions, which are licked and sometimes have a round red rash.
The cat's allergic reaction to environmental antigens (food, mites, pollen, fungi, dust, dander, etc.), coupled with the loss of cuticle, allows allergens to enter the body through the skin. With seasonal attacks, it is a chronic hereditary inflammatory disease that cannot be cured.
Skin irritation and trichotillomania, even secondary respiratory symptoms.
Daily necessities of the cat should be disinfected, washed and replaced on time, and the infected hair should be cleaned frequently.
