    Default What is this?

    Hi everyone!
    I'm wondering if anyone has seen anything like this? I think it could be yeast because he licks it & it smells like Fritos haha. It is starting to concern me though.

    Is it just on the paw? Is it also on the nose? @2BullyMama has a point. But usually hyperkrratosis is only paws n nose hard like bristles. No cure but need to trim it off. Also I have never heard of it having a bad smell. My 2 cents.

    It does look like hair! It is only on the pad of his paw, not in his nose. I knew you guys would know! Thank you @2BullyMama & @helsonwheels

    More I look at it, the more I think it is hyper keratosis... as Helene stated -- no cure, just trim it off. The Fritos smell is yeast and you can do epsom soaks to help control that

    Agree, it's most probably hyperkeratosis. It is most often hereditary condition, but also can be caused by zinc deficiency. Treatment is usually just trimming and using different softening oils, as if it is left untreated, skin becomes too thick and can crackle. And it is very sore (the same like heel cracks in people).

    I agree, looks like hyperkeratosis Hopefully it will be contained to that one area. @Emily
