hi everyone i need some help! i just bought my kitten like two weeks ago, when i first got her she wouldnt eat or drink but now she is doing ok. But the problem is that now she has diarrhea, and i just noticed that behind her ear there is some white flakes and her hair is falling out, and its a little bit red. Please give me some help on what to do!
What type of cat is it? It may have ringworm (a fungus) which causes the skin to be scaly and red and the hair to fall out. The diarhea could be from stress, diet, or worms or possibly something more serious. Has the kitten been to the vet since you bought it? Had any vaccinations or worming?
When I got my first kitten, I had a similar problem... we had recently moved and the stress from the move made my kitty flare up with ringworm as well as mange. He developed a big bald spot on his head that was all red and yucky. Mange is very rare in cats, but he had that too! Take kitty to the vet and ask for them to check for both... if ringworm, it is transmissable to humans. Mange can kill kittens and other animals if they get it (in extreme cases). Take care of both things right away!
She needs to be vet checked. You didn't indicate she was when you purchased her and you and your vet need a baseline. If the hairloss is perfectly round it could be ring worm which is a fungus and treatable but something that you and/or a family member could contract. This really sounds like it's all due to stress but take her to the vet.
