Q. A lesion on my cat's back. It is round, open, and has small raised clusters, like seeds in it. We've applied neosporin, but no change.

A. You could try bathing with chlorhexidine (diluted hibiscrub) and gently try to lift and scabs which may be attached to the surface and reduce and bacterial infection but if it does not respond within 3-5 days this should be assessed and sampled by your vet
