    I would apply the mupirocin twice a day and wash with chlorhexidine once daily. If skin is not getting better you will probably need oral antibiotics.

    I would say not to apply coconut oil since it will dilute the mupirocin. If you have menuka honey you could use that instead of mupirocin since it is a very good antiseptic.

    I don't have any menuka honey. But I can pick up some tomorrow in mean time I'll just use the ointment I have. I just hate to use all I have since it is good ointment. If it don't get better I will probably take him to vet Monday.

    Should I shave the area around top of his neck were it is infected? Would that help when I go to wash him and to apply the ointment?

    if you do decide to buy manuka honey make sure the antibiotic factor (UMF) is at least 12, the higher the better. It's also good to keep on hand to take when you get a sore throat, so might as well get some anyways.

    Regarding your probiotic there's a few synthetic ingredients in it. I personally wouldn't use it if its not 100% natural but that's me. I use only probiotics with "live strains" at your health food store. The more strains the better 12 n up.....This is the ones in the fridge and NOT on the shelves. Srains are more important than the # 50billion or 100billions etc...you can open a capsule and put it in a teaspoon of coconut oil n have gunnner eat it. Buy sauerkraut the "fermented" one only again the ones in the fridge! 1 tablespoon a day mix with his food especially if he's on antibiotics! My 2 cents worth.
