    Default Trying to identify this skin problem...

    Just noticed this spot on Mack's backside on Sunday. Treated it with alcohol and triple antibiotic. It's still there but not as red. Then tonight I saw the same spots on top of his head. I haven't found anything online that looks like it. Taking him to the vet Saturday but wanted to see if anyone had any information or have seen it before. The spots looks like a cluster of skin tags or scales. They don't itch and he doesn't seem to be bothered by it.-0827152205-jpg-0827152205a-jpg-0827152206-jpg

    It might be a flea/other bug allergy. Curly gets something similar to that if I forget to use his flea meds. Fish oil pills have helped

    Mack went to the vet yesterday but they couldn't identify it?! She did say it may be allergies and gave us a topical treatment with antibiotic called Tresaderm. After one treatment, the redness has gone away but the "clusters" are still there.

    He is 3 years old and the hair loss has only been on the tail. The spot on his head hasn't had any hair loss.

    Hope the treatment helps. Usually if they are unsure they do skin scraping but maybe that's at a later stage...

    Tresaderm is a great tool to keep on hand... helps with many aliments. but, I am concerned the vet could not identify the issue. Please keep us posted

    I would ask for a skin scrape if they didn't do one.But my girl has little clusters of skin tags on her elbows that the vet says are normal.
