Any ideas? It's about 1cm round, it looks fresh to me.

Vets tomorrow, any under arm wound is notoriously difficult to heal.

Agree with lonecat

One of my cats occasionally gets a raw patch in the underarm area through overgrooming (due to stress or occasionally a flea bite allergy), he has always needed vet intervention - a steroid injection and/or antibiotics and/or a lampshade collar (to stop him licking it). It would never heal by itself as it stays really damp and warm

Hope the vet can help

Oh bugger. I thought this might be the month we don't go to the vets.

Ok. Thanks everyone.

Dh reckons I should just book an appointment every month.

Vet says its ok, I just have bathe it with salt water.

I feel a bit mean dragging him down there now.
