    Default Skin redness

    Tank had skin issue last month, took him to the vet. Vet said it was probably skin infections(she wasn't sure), she prescribed antibiotics. And she took a skin scrap for test--came up negative. I thought maybe he was missing the hair from the vet scrapping his skin, but his hair started growing back recently. Should I be worried? I apply desitin cream on it. It doesn't seem to bother him at all. Should I be applying something else? He didn't have hair growing b4, but now it's growing--slowly.

    Wonder if it was a hotspot.... was the skin wet/moist at the time?

    No moister, mostly dry. His allergies have been getting crazy lately. He's currently on Fromms pork & peas (my 3rd protein change). He wakes up with boogers in his eyes every other morning. If he wakes up the boogers in his eyes I give him Benadryl. There is no break in the skin.

    I order zymox online ( the shampoo and rinse) because my bully gets really red spots on her tummy. When I see it I start applying the rinse on it every day twice a day usually gone in about 5 days unless it's really bad spot. The vet told me to use that on spots that hair is coming out on back if u feel sores because it's a skin infection. i also use cephalexin antibiotic too with the rinse treatment. I do not rinse it off just use like u would a lotion. If you had gotten a prescription ( antibiotic) from the vet and u know it worked go to a fish site and order it there without a prescription it will save u tons of money. My vet wasn't happy when i told her that's what I did she missed a sale...

    Since the hair is growing back, it is getting better, so I wouldn't put anything on it. Just keep an eye on it.

    Not really, the hair loss was probably from allergies, and now that the hair is growing back, that's a good thing.
