    Default Tail pocket problem! I'm new to this so I'm freaking out:(

    I don't know what to do now I just got Joey's cyst/wound she's had under her food to heal and now last night I discovered that her tail pocket has a problem Here is a picture...

    -20140415_111048-jpg

    She's got the so called "tight screw tail" so the folds by her tail is pretty deep... she has never during these 3 1/2 years we've had her had a problem like this (she'll turn 7 in October). I'm completely new to issues like this Can I buy diaper rash cream and put on this? or is that for milder bacterial infections? She's got like a redish bump and it's liquidish so it's hard to keep dry, and the hairs came out too when I cleaned it out last night I gave her a bath with a shampoo called Pyostat this morning at 5 am cos she was barking and I'm sure it was cos she itched. I'm so sad for her

    Is this a disaster that needs medical attention? I'm stressing about it being cancer and all kinds of thoughts are going through my mind

    Can I dry it out with Epsom salt like I do when she gets interdigital cysts or what must I do?

    Like the typical bulldog she doesn't suffer in silence... she's barking when it itches/hurts so at least I know when I have to help her... She's so good, she lets me do whatever back there and she licks my leg while I'm busy. I love her<3

    I would keep washing it with the pyostat a few times today and apply desitin, if it gets worse then maybe get to the vet. You don't by any chance have some panalog ointment?

    I've cleaned it a few times today and it looks better, she doesn't seem as bothered by it anymore either... but I'm sure it's still uncomfortable I don't have that ointment but I can go to the vet tomorrow and ask for it... I'm pretty sure they'll sell it to me without prescription... things here are not very strict and it's not a proper vet as this is a VERY Small town. I hope I can sort this out by myself I just freaked out yesterday when I saw it

    The shampoo has antibacterial and antifungal, so I'd keep up on that. The panalog is antibacterial, antifungal plus a but of steroid, for inflammation. Works on so many things like this. Great to have in your bully first aid kit!

    I think she will be ok, she slept all night without waking me up She's still sleeping but as soon as she wakes up I'll clean it and then take a trip to our local vet and pharmacy to see if they have any of those creams.

    It turns out I had Curatex that I got for their nose ropes a while back but never needed to use.. It is anti-inflammatory and the shampoo I'm using is anti-bacterial/fungal so I'm thinking it should work using those two together?
