    Yes that does look like a hotspot, ouch! Poor baby. I do not know of that antibiotic, but if it's a cream I would say no unless it has a bit of steroid in it. (Like panalog)

    If you have any hydrogen peroxide or witch hazel that will help dry it out?

    Get some chlorhexidine from the drug store (also called Hibiclens). Follow instructions on the bottle on how to dilute it and put some on a clean cloth and apply to the hot spot. Chlorhexidine is a very good antiseptic and will hopefully help your Major out.

    Hopefully there is enough air there to keep it from doing so, do you have a hair buzzer or mustache trimmer?

    as hard as it is, you need to shave it down or take him to the vet to have it done..... the fur holds particles of dirt which prevents it from staying clean and dry.

    It does look like a hotspot try witch hazel. I would lay off hydrogen peroxide because it will dry it out but when it does start healing it can also kind of eat away the fresh layer of new skin trying to form
