    I agree with Sherry... looks like staph --- lots of antibiotics will clear it up. This usually shows up when the immune system is weak --- allergies?

    Would allergies cause her immune system to become weak?? About 2 weeks ago she started chewing her paws n getting very yeasty n I know from here that's food allergies 101, so out went the kibbles n bits n we started feeding her blue buffalo white fish n brown rice!!! I clean her nose rope every night well Wednesday night we had a family emergency n I forgot to well Thursday morning her nose rope was beat red and caked with yeast that's under control but this spot has got me wanting to cry now my poor baby I'm supposed to take care of her not make her worse!!!!

    yes, allergies are one of the reasons an immune system will weaken. Even though BB is a good food... she could be allergic to an main ingredient in the food... example, my girl is allergic to chicken, and sensitive to salmon, but my boy was allergic to all RICE... which is usually the top of the list for ingredients. think about a grain free food.

    You can also talk to your vet about a full blood screen allergy test which will give you a list of her sensitivities... if you plan to do so, make sure Porky has not been on steroids for at least 30 days before taking the blood for the test. if steroids are in her system you will get false results because the steroids cover the issue not correct it.

    good luck and keep us posted after the vet appointment

    @Sherry @Baconator @ChanelnBrutus @BruceP @JeannieCO @2BullyMama thank you all for your advice n help it is indeed a staph infection she was given a steroid injection n is on a weeks worth of antibiotics!! Her vet said that it was caught very early n bcuz of that she thinks it will heal up nicely!! We are trying the ok is it this game with her food for now since her vet gave her the steroids but they actually do the skin test rather than blood so I'm kind of glad she's not getting the test yet lol!!! Thank you so much everyone
