Weighing Bowl Black Chin

What causes Black Chin?

This black chin may be caused by folliculitis, also known as black chin, an endocrine disorder that manifests itself as a lot of small black spots on the chin, similar to cinders, and in some cats, it also appears at the base of the tail, always looking dirty, as if it can't be cleaned. Like blackheads on the nose, folliculitis is not contagious. It is the same with the tail, which has a sebaceous gland that can become inflamed if blocked, and in severe cases can become pus-filled. It is important to take preventive measures to avoid feliculitis, whether the cats are domesticated indoor cats or have a habit of going outside, and this requires an understanding of the causes of the disease.
