Eosinophilic granuloma complex
This syndrome describes a group of skin conditions in cats. Most of the cases are caused by an underlying allergy and can be effectively resolved by treating the allergy. In a few cases more invasive or prolonged treatment is required. Whatever the cause, it is important to seek veterinary advice early in the course of the disease to have the best chance of resolution. If your cat has any itchy or sore looking patches on their skin or ulcers on their lip which refuse to heal you should make an appointment with your veterinarian immediately.
