    I wish I could determine that its an infection, but I don't think they are. So I am not 100% sold on my vets neosporin idea. This seems more like an inflammation of the skin. Probably due to not being cleaned very often. I would think alcohol rub and keeping it dry would work best. With some sort of cortaid cream for inflammation. That's my uneducated guess. I'll have to do some more reading.

    Ouchie!!! They are usually caused by bacteria, and can also be triggered by allergies due to paw licking. The soaks will help reduce the swelling and yes I think the douxo will help too.

    You are not far off.... They are normally related to allergies Nd they lick the paw causing the bacteria build up in which just makes it a party in between the toes for the inflammation. Warm foot soaks with Epsom salt and even perpetration-h can reduce the swelling. Then the fun part is finding the allergy that is causing the licking to stop them from coming back. Nitchke was rice... Once we got that out of his diet he never got another one. Banks is grass/weeds so it is a constant battle, however because I wipe her paws after each outside venture, they are very few and far between and I can see them forming and get them treated before they really get started. Spring and fall are her time to see them 'blooming'

    I have Diesel just two months and this is the first time he had any. He did have a irritation once but I cleaned it up and out neosporin on it and next day was fine. It is his back paw and he is not licking or chewing on it . I have my other bully on Benadryl right now cause she got seasonal allergies right now . We love in GA and the pollen are crazy here, cars are YELLOW!!!!
