Cat mites on ears or not..?

Hi there..
We have 2 cats..BOTH stay indoors all the time..
Males (got the operation) one age 17 now going blind but still enjoying live and purring all the time..

Younger male 3 years old..
Noticed bump the size of coloured pin heads..I noticed that the
hair is falling out..
He does not scratch..but his ears feld warm to the touch..I
treated it with cortozone cream and the ears tempreture went back to normal..
The bumps went away ..
I noticed the bumps on his nose again..

My friend thinks it is mites because her cats was diagnosed with mites..
BUT I dont see anything in his ears..he does not moan or react
strange when I touch his ears..

If this is mites..
Why do we only see them after having the cat for 3 years..?
Why does these mites not go onto the other cat..?

They go for their injections and check up yearly..

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS MIGHT BE..?
WHAT CAN I TREAT THE BUMPS WITH..?

Hope to hear from you soon..
Kind regards..Michelle

Hallo michelle

Unlikely to be mites, can be a allerigc reaction to flea bites. I would use a dilute solution of hibiscrub to clean the areas with twice daily.
