Wound/sore On My Cat's Chin

I noticed that my cat has a small wound on her chin. I was petting her and I saw what looked like dried blood on her chin.. I wiped it off and it looks like there's a small cut or something. I couldn't tell because she was moving around too much, she hates her face being touched. But, I couldn't get a good picture so I found one online that looks pretty similar:

Any ideas of what this could be? Should I take her to the vet? Thanks x

Best Answer

Before I even looked at the picture my thought was that it might be feline acne - and the text with that picture was right. Some cats can have a reaction to plastic food dishes and this causes crusty areas with dried blood at times under the chin. If you are using plastic food and water bowls then try changing to glass, ceramic or metal. If this is the problem it could make a huge difference.
Of course it could be something else but try this first. My cat had something similar and I knew about this possibility. I tried switching and the problem got better.
