    Default Red sores on Chunk's belly :(

    Hi everyone!

    Yesterday I noticed these red welts on Chunks belly. They are warm to touch and seem itchy. He is a rescue and when he was surrendered, had a serious bacterial skin infection. We have him taking an antibiotic everyday and a pill for yeast control 3x a week. I bath him in an anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti yeast wash once a week, supplement his grain free food (Fromm) with ACV, salmon oil and give him a pro biotic everyday. He has been totally fine up until yesterday. His skin and fur look amazing. What should I be doing? It breaks my heart to think he's uncomfortable Thanks!

    I looks sore for sure, It sounds like you have a handle on everything, food and what not, It looks environmental. If it were me, after you wash him, rinse him with some 25% apple cider vinegar 75% water and leave it on. It will balance his ph level. try some gold bond powder when he's completely dry, I wouldn't do the medicated one, it may sting. Or instead of the powder if you have a bit of Desitine diaper rash creme apply that.

    Molly gets a rash like this sometimes, almost like a heat rash. I usually put something with a steroid on it and it is gone by the next day, like malecetic otic or Panalog. Same place, on her lower belly.

    Sarah has a slight rash on her belly just redness though I think its from the heat. I use hydrocortisone cream on it and it goes away pretty quickly

    It showed up yesterday and it hasn't been hot at all here... maybe low 70's with a nice cool breeze. Could it be grass? would grass make it show up suddenly?

    It's quite possible yes, silly question? how long has he been on the salmon oil? could be allergic to that if it's something new to his diet. Just guessing

    He's been on the salmon oil for a month. I put some Desitin on it at about 7 and I looked at it right now and its completely gone!

    Also try to get him to sleep on a cotton sheet,it's said that dogs don't sweat in the groin area but there are glands that secrete oils and I've always believed that bulldogs secrete more for some reason,nappy rash cream is the best to get rid of the initial rash,keeping it clean and dry helps so much,when Annie was outside I made her lay on cotton sheets ,having no fur on the under carriage doesn't help it's very difficult and at times a full time job,karen
