    Default Interdigital Cyst

    I have an english bulldog that has a interdigital cyst on his foot. Does anybody have a home remedy that has been proven to be effective? Is it something that will require surgery? I love english bulldogs but they just have so many different health issues that i have to deal with and worry about it. Somebody help please!

    I HIGHLY recommend soaking in Epsom Salt twice a day until it's cleared up. In the mean time, what are you feeding your baby? His cyst could be related to an allergy from his food.

    You can dilute some Betadine Solution with water until it is the color of iced tea & soak the paws for 5-10 minutes.

    I am currently feeding him fromm beef fritta. He loves the food but i still notices that he still has skin allergies. I been told it could take over a month for the allergies to go away once you change the food. I have changed his food so many times its ridiculous.

    This isnt a home remedy, but if there is any inflammation or of it looks like its irritated, you can try Vetericyn. It made the inflammation in Herman's cyst disappear very quickly (like in a few hours). I'm still dealing with what might be 'scar tissue' but I'm not sure yet, but its not big and painful, just normal pink skin.

    Something else that was recommended to me was to clearn with mercuroclear (clear iodine) and put Preparation H before bed to shrink it. This didnt help Herman, but I know others have been successful with it.

    We use the Epsom salt foot bath. It works like a charm, within about a day after a soak (about 5 mins) the cyst is close to healed.

    They are sometimes caused by cutting nails or letting nails grow too long, but usually it's bacteria that comes from paw licking. Paw licking is a sign of allergies. So basically they usually come from allergies!

    We just had our first ever. I noticed Jesse licking her paw a lot but I figured that was because I took away her nylabone to clean it up. Well, 2 days later mommy still had not cleaned her nylabone (Shame!) she had a giant one (cyst) in the morning. I cleaned it up, soaked and used malecetic otic.

    I decided to do a full inspection of her to make sure there was no hives. She looked good, nothing to be found. Decided I had better clean her ears and folds anyway. Spread her girlie bits and found the issue. She had an unseen rash down there (ouch!) that must've itched like crazy!! It was pretty red and hot to the touch. Treated that and the paw licking stopped.

    Moral of the story: bullies like to lick their paws when they have an itch they can't scratch.

    Her cyst was gone in a couple of days. Boy was I glad I found the rash!
