    Default Red inner thigh

    Hello,
    spring is now here. For the last week or so, I notice lulu been licking her inner thigh a lot that it's pink, light reddish. She also has some spots on her back legs near her thigh, look like bug bites. I don't know if this is allergies, reaction to bug bites, or something serious. AnyOne else had this problem with their babies?

    Hi there, I'm sorry she's going through this. Can you post a picture of her leg and the spots?

    It looks uncomfortable, those could be bites or hives.... You can give benedryl 1mg per pound (plain benedryl without any aspirin or anything added). I'm sure allergerues are getting bad in Florida right now.

    What type if kibble do you feed?

    clean the are with warm wash cloth and wipe with witch hazel or get some Douxo pads . Give Benedryl up to 3x a day 1mg per pound

    She eats nutro dry rice/lamb mix with limited ingredients nutro wet rice/lamb. She had blood pimples under her chin for months until we switched her food (she use to eat blue buffalo potato and duck). No more pimples and her thighs been red only two weeks (she's been on nutro for a few months now) I'm going to get her Benadryl and wipe her with the pads. With the Benadryl, is it in pill form or only liquid?

    and she is only red in that area

    I had a bulldog 8 years ago with that same thing! Grass allergy was a culprit, and believe it or not the vet said take the blanket out of her crate. She was allergic to the blanket, hence why her rash was on belly/leg area. It was the way she layed. Give some Benadryl. Hope she feels better

    Thank you for posting the pic. I hope she gets better, spring is the worst for allergies.
