After a cat is exposed to an allergen, subsequent exposure causes hypersensitivity reactions.
However, hypersensitivity reactions are not all the same.
Hypersensitivity reactions (allergic reactions) vary depending on the cat’s individual immune system characteristics.
The following are common symptoms of skin allergies in cats:
- Ear infections and excessive ear discharge
- Greasy feel to the body, with fur appearing sticky and patchy
- Puss-filled bumps on the skin
- Secondary bacterial and yeast skin infections
