My cat had gotten on the skin under the hoe something that looks like black fur and searched for what it could be, probably feline acne as it is called.
He started itching on it and and we noticed that it has become a scary wound so we have started treatment with chlorhexidine and he has got a collar so he can not itch on it himself anymore.
He also bleeds a little and has created two small wounds.
Do we wait and treat him ourselves or seek out a veterinarian is the question?

It sounds like it could be black chin or feline acne as it is also called.
But there may be other explanations for your cat’s sore chin.
If it does not get better in a few days, a veterinarian should be consulted.
