    Default I noticed this bald spot today

    I was giving Vegas his bath and I noticed he has a bald spot, about the size of a quarter on his top right hip, there is a yellow crusty scab on the edge, one tiny sore. Anyone else experienced this? I will be taking him Monday to the vet for a scraping. I have not noticed any itching. I don't know how in the world I missed this!!!!

    Staph I'd bet. When we adopted Tank he had that and it got worse and worse even after a round of antibiotics. We put him on acidophilus for 10 days and problem solved.

    My Usko had small bold spots like that before I started feeding him raw food...about a month or two later they were gone and haven't been back since.

    I am kind of thinking allergies too,, Vegas has been on Benadryl non-stop for the last week, we had high winds from hurricane Sandy all week even though we are on the other coast. Everything is so stirred up in the air that even I had to take a couple allergy pills this week. I am taking him in on Monday to have it looked at by our vet. It does not seem to bother him so I certainly think it can wait for our regular vet instead of rushing him to the ER.

    Thanks everybody for your input!

    I have no experience with staph, so I'm no help there. Looks kinda like VegasR's spot when he had mange....but I don't recall any crusties. Hopefully it's just allergies and nothing more.

    Sorry not sure what that would be, I have never seen a skin irritation on my guys yet, but then again they are still puppies. Not familiar with what mange, staph, cysts, or yeast etc that these guys can get look like, but am glad I'm getting the information, and advice, and learning what it does look like, so I will be able to recognize it , if they do get something in the future. Sorry Usko has something, hope it isn't too serious, and clears up quickly. Feel better Usko. . Hopefully it's just a irritation, did you try a cortisone cream, or some polysporin? Can't hurt until you see the vet. I also heard witchhazel and tea tree oil is helpful for skin irritations. Also can't hurt, as they are a natural product.

    Since you are going to the vet Monday, and he's not itching, I'd just leave it alone for now. It could be just a hot spot from his allergies.

    I agree with @Davidh. The only Bulldog I've had with hot spots was Harley and it was food related.
