    Default What's this, y'all? (Swollen red skin and hair loss)

    Bella's face and neck have been like this for a while. First I tried Veterycn, which did absolutely nothing.

    Then the vet put her on Temaril and Cephalexin, but it's not helping much at all.

    She's been on Apoquel for months now, too, which has been a miracle for controlling her allergies.

    What is this red, blotchy skin, and how do I get rid of it??

    looks like dermatitis, an irritation of the skin.

    Clean with hydrogen peroxide, followed by vetericyn spray.

    That is so strange looking... is it wet like a hot spot? I'm curious is maybe it's from what she's eating or drinking and it's getting too wet...

    Nope, it's completely dry. It is ​very strange.

    That is crazy... I say go w/what @harveyspecter said... try the peroxide and the vetericyn spray. Do you have those duoxo wipes? I have used those on bullies too and they are pretty mild...

    I used Veterycn for weeks, and all I did was waste Veterycn. It did nothing. I'll try peroxide, I suppose.

    Thanks!

    Hmm, they're both stainless steel. I'll double check everything, though.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Since this is dry & only on her snout & side of face, I'm wondering if perhaps Bella's developed a
    nickel allergy? Try using glass bowls to see if any difference & please keep us updated.
    Sending big hugs & starting prayers over y'all, xoxo

    RIP beloved boy.

    Cali...what was the Vet's dx and what is Temaril?

    Not sure I agree with giving Bella Cephalexin as it doesn't look bacterial to me.

    Hmm... any changes in on the ground level? New carpet, floor cleaner, or spray in the yard? To me it almost looks like something she is sniffing to get into... that is why I was thinking her food, the bowls, maybe new toys?!!
