    Hi there and Welcome to the site! It could be a hotspot and thats what Im thinking...I would have the vet do a scrape to be sure its nothing too serious. I would shave the area and clean it very good and dry well....If it is a hotspot it needs air to dry out. Others will be by with more advice for you! Hope things get better and hope its nothing serious but you should do a skin scrape to just give peace of mind Ill tag some peeps to help out! @Sherry @2BullyMama @cowsmom @JAKEISGREAT

    From what I can see it looks like a rash or dermatitis, possibly a skin infection. Anything new like new type of food, treats, laundry soap, toys, trees, flowers, more household stress than usual, ect? Basically have you changed anything in the past weeks?

    You will probably want to visit your vet but for now you can try anti itch creme and benedryl to see if it goes down. Benedryl is 1mg per pound. I would go see your vet just in case antibiotics are needed.

    If its left untreated it could be serious depending what it is. Usually when you first see it as you have and now you are going to treat it should be fine.Keep it as clean as you can and like @desertskybulldogs said use some anti itch creme. I would get the vet to do a skin scrape. Its quick and easy to determine what this is. What are you currently feeding him?

    @jxonla yes, that appears to be the beginnings of a hotspot. shave the hair from the area, clean with hydrogen peroxide and then clean daily with Listerine... the key is to keep the area clean and dry. These are normally a result of allergies which weaken the immune system and then you start to see these red, moist spots(sores).

    What are you feeding your bullies?

    you have already gotten good advice. might be a food issue if it is a hotspot.

    Thank you.

    Hot sports or staph infections are not contagious.They are also very common. Keep the spots dry and clean, if they smell bad, wash and dry with antibacterial soap. a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar to rinse and leave on, will balance the ph level in the skin. I would also call the vet on Monday to have it checked by a professional since it is an open sore.

    Hi,

    Thanks for all of your information. I didn't change any food for a while, he is still eating dry food as usual.

    I did put some anti itch creme on him last night & hope he can get better.

    It doesn't smell bad but his hair keep loosing on couple of spot.

    May i ask normally how long will it take to recover?

    I won't be free cause work till Wednesday, will it be too late to take him to the vet or i could wait ??

    May i ask what do you guys feel your bulldogs?? I hear people feed them meat as well could i do it to make him my healthy ??

    Also, He is living in the same room with the other bulldog, will the other get effect too??

    Thanks again for all your help.

    When you say they live in the same room do you mean they just have a room or they get to roam also? Hot spots arent contagious so I wouldnt worry about that...I feed Brutus Fromm Grain free food...We have a food recomendations page that will help find a great rated food for your bullie...If its not gone by Wed I would have the vet take a look at it to make sure its nothing more than a hotspot..If it is then it may not go away until you find the allergy causing it

    Hi,

    I have another bulldog live in the same room as the one got hot spots.

    I just shave Humber the hot spots areas, I found he has 3 hot spots on him. and i put anti itch creme on him again. Hope he can get well soon.

    for right now i still can't think of what case the allergy, he's been eating the same food and i keep his area very clean.

    If that still don't go away then i will take him to the vet on Wed.

    May i ask how long does hot spots least??
