    Never tried preparation H but I have tried diaper rash creme and it worked somewhat. It was more successful on his face since he would usually lick it off his foot.
    With the cleaning routine, I'd just keep a small basin of clean water near the door and have him stand in it - sometimes I would include regular vinegar. If he was muddy, I'd get hypoallergenic baby wipes and just clean his paws really really good after being outside

    I forgot to ask, how old is Lily? It's not uncommon for bulldogs to "grow into" their allergies.

    You have some great advice for treatment and you're already treating. My only advice is treat until 100%, not 99% heal. Emma's interdigital cyst came back with vengeance because I didn't treat it until it was completely healed.

    Here's a really informative article I prepped that all should read. It's great info to have just in case your bully ever gets one.

    She is two and half. That is a great idea with the basin of clean water. I am going to try that. Thanks!

    And that it would hopefully clear up in a few days.
    I am using epsom salt & witch hazel to treat it.
    And while it hasn't gotten any better or any worse up until this morning when I found blood on her pillow.
    I called the vet first thing and got her an appointment after work today.
    I still have no idea what this could be.
    Does it look like a small cyst to you guys? Something else?
    It doesn't seem to bother her at all. She will let me touch it.
    I have not seen her licking or biting at it.
    I'm really worried that I waited to long. I should of taken her to vet sooner!!
    I feel like a horrible mommy right now!!

    I'm thinking this might not be an interdigital cyst are usually between the 'toes' this is on the 'toe', right? --- Lisa could this be a hysto-thingy? @desertskybulldogs If it is the hysto-thingy, they are nothing and will go away on it's own in a few weeks,

    Yes it's on the top part of her paw by the toe. I took her to 2 different vets. The first vet said it could be from a bug bite or a cut. She gave us some ointment to use for 10 days. She said to bring her back if it got any bigger with in the 10 days.
    I brought her back to the vet 2 days later cause it was bleeding and oozing and it just didn't look right to me but I was told by the second vet that it's fine just a cut of some kind and to keep using the ointment. I just google hystiocytoma and yes it does seem like that could be exactly what this thing is.
    But it could take months to go away?? It that right??
    I was told not to mess with it just to use the ointment twice a day. So I don't know I guess we are just going to have to wait it out?

    Hystiocytoma usually don't bleed and ooze... But I do suppose if she's licking it there's a possibility. What kind of ointment did they give you?

    They gave me Mupirocin ointment.
    I have caught her licking it from time to time.
    I have no idea what this thing could be. I think it bothers me more than her but I'm still worried.
