    Default Please Help Elmo, I am in Tears

    My Elmo started itching about a week ago, I noticed a red spot on his head, I bathed him in Antibacterial Shampoo and put Neosporin on it, this did not help, he is worse. Please someone Help Elmo, he has never had this before, he will be 3 in July. I am in tears looking at My Precious Bully Elmo. Thanking You for Helping Elmo.-100_0935-jpg-100_0936-jpg

    The side view photo looks like hot spots. I would get some Vetericyn spray or gel, and start using that on his spots. Also give him 2 benedryl twice to help the itch. He is so beautiful,it's sad to see that. Martha had big hot spots from wearing the cone, and the vetericyn cleared it up. Everything is blooming and he may have allergies.Hope that boy gets better soon! @My Otis

    Poor Elmo. It does look a lot like hotspots. They can spread rapidly. Frank had one on his head and I did the same thing as you did and it spread over his whole head. Like Lynn said, Vetericyn hotspot spray helped to clear it up. It can also help to shave or trim the area to keep it dry and from spreading even more. You might also try adding some probiotics to his meals. I think Frank's came from having allergies and having suppressed immune response from getting a round of vaccinations done.

    Agree.... Hotspots--- as Lynn and Erin stated.. Shave the areas and keep it clean and dry--- Vectericyn works wonders.

    You may need to wipe him off after a trip outside ... Cool clean cloth to remove the allergen

    Hope he heals up quick

    Hi. Poor baby, I agree with everyone above. It looks like hot spots, and you've been given great advice from everyone already. I just want to saying hope Elmo feels better soon and it clears up. Sending love hugs and prayers to you both.

    Those hot spots are pretty bad- he may need a vet so he can get some steroids too.

    Those hot spots are bad. I would go to the vet for a steroid spray, then follow up with probiotics. The steroid is in the interest of clearing the hot spots soon. at this time, the vetericyn may or may not work.

    Good device here from very competent members. I'm especially in favor of shaving the neck area as it is very important to help keep the area dry. Consider socks on the feet and keeping nails as short as possible to minimize damage/irritation from scratching. We use belly bands to protect the neck area from further scratching when necessary.
    Has he had a bath recently? The reason I ask is that if the face is not thoroughly rinsed of soap, hot spots will soon follow.
    GL!!!

    Veterycin does work wonders but at this point I'd go to a vet and get something stronger...poor thing. It looks bad but Elmo will be fine once treated ..
