    Benedryl is a great idea to help with the itchiness. The desitin is just to give his poor skin a break! That is probably why he is so much more relaxed, it might be soothing that poor skin

    I'm going to tag @cowsmom on this too..her and gatorray know a lot about this stuff...that food..while a very good food...does have potato....might be another cause of yeasty problems. Don't panic..clean like gatorray said..the destine will help with the itch until you can get him to vet..remember..a little desitin goes a long way!

    I agree with the desitin. Looks like a hot spot to me. They spread very quickly! Neosporin usually doesn't help much with hot spots. Not sure though...I'm no expert!

    Ok - for those that have seen my posts before, I will sound like a broken record, but if you have not done so already get a full screen allergy test down when you go to the vet.... it will tell you every thing he is allergic to. Also, I agree with others -- looks like a hotspot and Listerine will help clear it up. They are very itchy, seepy and will crust up as they go away. And, Benedryl is much better than Zyertc... you can give up to 100 mg per day..... my two bullies get 50 in the morning and 50 at night. Both are allergic to every tree, grass and weed known to man!

    Verdict = HOT SPOT!!!

    I'm sure there is a home remedy but not knowing what it was and being such a newbie with this I just bit the bullet! They tried to shave and clean it but he wouldn't even let them get near him. So they're going to give him a mild sedative, shave and clean it up.

    He made it sound like it was rare for a bulldog to get them, or maybe he meant the location? Other wise he said that Hugo is extremely healthy! Phew what a morning!

    My BabyGirl had a similar problem after having a few bites of yam. Her whole face got crusty and oozie. Apples will cause a more minor reaction to her face. Just hit and miss right now. She has no problem with green beans and carrots though. Try to keep a diary of what your dog is eating including any snacks.

    Wow! I am so glad you took him in. He will feel so much better soon. What did they say to use on it? Did they give you something?

    As fast as it came on I was going to say hot spot. Keep the area clean and dry, and suspect it was food.
