Got your (cat's) nose

Kitten has reddish brown spots on nose, Google has been fruitless, what are they?

My latest foster kitten has these spots on her nose. They are reddish brown and irregularly shaped and appear to be furless. I've Googled incessantly for kitty skin conditions but they don't seem to match any images. At first, I read about lentigo simplex (a harmless condition found in orange, calico, and tortiseshell cats that causes freckle-like brown or black spots on the nose and gums) and thought that might be it -- but all the photos of lentigo simplex I've seen show spots on the pink part of the nose, not the flat part right above it. The folks who run the foster agency are stumped. I've been putting antifungal cream on it just in case it's a fungal infection, but there has been no change so far. Her sister with whom she is inseparable has no symptoms. Behaviorally, the cat doesn't seem to be bothered by the spots at all.

Does anyone know what this is?
