    @kazzy220 what is a hot spot..And Im not sure if he is alergic to the food but just yesterday I completeley switch over to FROMM 4 star duck and sweet potato. I noticed it last week when it was just brownish and size of a penny. During his food tranistion Ive mixed 100 percent caned pumkin in his food for him to eat it.

    @Cooper11 no it doesnt smell and when I applied the triple antibiotic he seemed fine.

    It's a form of dermatitis .. it grows to become a raw open sore that can ooze fluid. Basically it's a skin infection and bullys seem to get it alot when they are in contact with something they are allergic to. It could be the food or it may be something around him ...even a plastic water or food bowl. They are usually quite itchy and can spread fast. I'm going to tag @desertskybulldogs and @acarabias who have both dealth with hot spots recently and can give you some help.

    Just a thought .. I do love Fromm ... but Maggie did not do well on the duck and sweet potato. I know she's not good with chicken so whether it was the duck or an allergy to the potato (which a lot of bullys have) I really couldn't say but I've never bought that paticular flavour again!

    A hot spot is just a wound that is caused by different things. Even fleas can cause them on some dogs. The worst part is if they get out of controll they can get infected and are hard to heal. Dogs will lick and scratch them..which of course compounds the problem. Neosporin or a triple antibiotic..any of those will be fine. Witch hazel would be ok on broken skin..but if it's in a wrinkle or nose rope..after you use witch hazel..take a teeny...I mean teeny ..dab of desitin on a Qtip and use on irritated wrinkle. On that hot spot..I would treat it with the peroxide and antibiotic ointment ..not witch hazel!

    @Antonio Tablante my Aldo had a hotspot recently. I shaved the area, it was about 2 inches x 2 inches and oozing fluid. It was due to some treats I gave him for training. I shaved the area to let it air dry, washed it with clorhexidine every few days and dried really good with cotton balls. It grew a little more before getting better. But it ended up drying up fully in about 1.5 weeks or so. If you look in my threads you will see a picture of the one my dog had

    a hot spot is usually a food allergy i believe. if this has just come up when you were switching food im thinking to back off the switch and see if it gets better. tear stains can be food or environmental. ive no experience with cleaning them but maybe some peroxide and water. then maybe some powder to keep it dry. i like lotrimin powder as it will kill any yeast that maybe there. i dont think i would use witch hazel on an open sore or raw skin id think it would burn. there are several threads about hot spots i think in the bulldog health section. gosh i cant remember what they did for them. i think they shaved the area and cant remember what they put on it. maybe try some triple antibiotic.
    also have you thought of a blood allergy test. will help you so much with food issues as to what to feed and tell you what environmental he is allergic to. gosh good luck
