Feline eosinophilic dermatitis is a skin problem in cats. There are three main types, which all affect different parts of the body.
Ear mites are tiny parasites that can affect ears. They are common in kittens but can also affect adult cats.
An aural haematoma is a blood blister that forms inside the ear flap when a blood vessel bursts. They often form because your cat has been shaking their head or scratching their ear.
Ear infections are painful. They are caused by germs (bacteria and yeast) growing inside the ear and often develop because something else is causing problems inside the ear.
