    Default My Bulldog hot spot are getting worst. May i ask if any one know what should i do?

    Hi,

    Recently i posted in here about my bulldog has a skin problem and as i was told he has Hot spot issue.

    Right after i get off work today i see his hot spot is bleeding.

    May i ask what should i do? I took him to the vet on last saturday and the vet told me to use medicated shampoo to see if he could get better but today it even worst.

    May i ask what else i can do?

    Thank you for all your help.

    I highly recommend the following:

    Chlorhex 2X 4% Shampoo, 8 oz.
    ChlorHex 2X 4% Spray, 8 oz

    I'm not sure if you can find these at a retail store but I order on Amazon. Use them at the first sign of a hot spot.

    Maybe someone can recommend something readily available until you can get these but they really work fast.

    good luck!

    Shave the area and wash it with hibiclens or another antibacterial soap, it needs air to dry out or it will continue to spread. Put any product with bacteria killer and drying agent in it like yellow listerine, malacetic, witch hazel, ect.... then apply some sort of steroid cream like hydrocortisone in a small amount, just enough to relieve the itching. If you have malacetic ultra that's your best bet. Do this 3 times a day.

    Do you know what caused the hot spot? For that area I would say food or collar is the culprit.

    If you follow these directions..they should clear up. But you need to figure out what is causing them. Desertskybulldogs was suggesting..most often it's a reaction to the food the bully is eating. What food is he on?

    If it continues to get worse don't hesitate to see your vet. If they give a shot it will most likely be a steroid which will help, but also mask the issue. Once the steroid wears off the hotspots will likely come back.

    How old is your bully, and how long on this food? It is a very low grade food with loads of corn, grains, fillers, and junk. Bulldogs rarely do well on these foods. Check out the dog food ratings to find a better choice for your bully.

    Hotspots usually come from an allergic reaction to food. Please keep us posted on your progress.
