Mello is about 4-5 years old. Primarily an indoor cat. She does run outside maybe an hour or so a few times a week since she's sneaky into the backyard and has been for months. The backyard has a wall that surrounds the property and she stays confined. I am located in Florida where it is hot and for about the last month or so I've noticed spots which almost look like pimples forming on her nose. It seems to be getting worse as time goes on. Any opinions as to how concerned I should be? I uploaded a new picture which shows a little more detail. Please help.

Cats can have a lot of skin problems. Has she also got them under her chin. It does look it could be the beginning of "feline acne" or possibly ringworm. Another possibility is sensitivity to the sun. You should have her checked by the vet.
