    Default Dermodex

    My 9mth old had dermodex on her face it's cleared up for the most part with antibiotics and cream from the vet. Now she has a bald spot on her back size of a penny. Her skin was dry in that spot now she has lost her hair it's not red or infected. Any ideas ? This is my first bulldog and I'm afraid I'm not doing something right

    It may be another localized spot, do you have any leftover cream you can put on until you see the vet?

    So sorry your baby is having this problem. We have some great members who can give you advice. I think using the cream until you can get in to the vet is a good idea.

    Hi and welcome to the forum
    It might take some time for everything to fully clear out ;-( , I would suggest for another trip to the vet to make sure everything is healing as it should and the current treatment is working

    edit : forgot to add , baths in a medicated shampoo like malaseb for instance can help also
    sometimes 2 treatments can be required after vet check if thee is till presence of live mites -it can take from few weeks to few months for your dog to be completely mite free

    Sorry to hear about your bullie's problem. There is a product called Nu Stock, you can get it at a horse supply-or look on the internet. I have used it for years. It will take care of the spot you mention, and many other wounds,mange,etc. It used to come in a jar-now it's in a big tube. it separates,so you have to mush the tube around until it mixes. Read the directions. It works. It's about $13.00.
