    Default Ingrown Hair Bad Spot

    Ok little Miss Harlea has an issue. I noticed last night before we we did our nightly cleaning ritual that she was scooting her butt a bit on the floor. I looked her over at that time but didn't see anything and went about our wipe down process and nothing appeared out of the ordinary. This morning she scooted her butt again and I looked over her again and didn't see anything right away. I turned on the big light in the room and bam there it was. She has what appears to be an ingrown hair on the edge of her lady parts.

    Sorry for the poor pic it was tough trying to snap it while she was being ms. wiggle butt. I know how to treat cysts and ingrown hairs on paws and other parts of the body, but I am not to sure how I should go about treating this. Do I just use warn Epsom salt compresses or is there something else I should try? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Oh Todd, I'm brain dead today but will think about it and hopefully, someone
    will have ideas. Since she can't lick off meds, I'd put Neosporin (w/anesthic)
    on it to reduce the infection and it may clear up w/no further problem. Other
    than that, have Vet pull the hair? Praying for Baby Girl to get better!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    No problem Carol. I totally understand. Maybe @desertskybulldogs or @Davidh will have an idea.

    It's cool Tracey. I will figure it out. I am researching it now anyhow. A lot of sites to fknd the hair yourself and pull it but I am not comfortable doing that because of where it is and how much she squirms.

    Maybe a warm compress will help the hair come to the surface?

    This is great advice if you can do it, you hold her or your wife hold her and then the other try to get it out. I'm sorry she's going through this, I never knew bully girls could get these!

    Sorry, been gone all day. I think the warm compress will help them see if you can pull it out. Also sometimes scooting on the floor also means their anal glands needs expressed.

    Yeah I thought it was her glands as well but I checked those and they appear normal and there is no fishy smell from her rear. She was going to have those expressed this weekend when she goes to the puppy parlor anyhow. I will try the compress and see how it goes.
