Hi all, Joey has developed a very sore nose rope, I’ve been alway good about cleaning and drying but still now it’s sore and tons of gunk coming out when I dab at it.

PLEASE I need to know the BEST course of treatment for her.

I have Vetericyn spray, Malacetic wipes, and neosporin.

Thank you all for any help. Breaks my heart that I somehow failed at preventing this.

Sue

Thanks Christine! 37563542-FE49-4C1F-A800-D41E0924029D.jpeg

The irritation extends the entire length of nose rope. Even had some scabbing

Thanks for the pic.... As you described it, I thought it might be the case.... hotspot. Scabs forming and that goo like moisture...get it as dry as you can. is the Vetercyn for hotspots or just the wound spray?

I doubt you can shave that area, but you have to keep it dry and clean

Thanks so much! For hotspots too. So no neosporin? Can’t shave, pretty deep nose rope.

[MENTION=14995]sisters3[/MENTION] Just another alternative, Maude had the same thing this summer. I used the NuStock,every 3 days-cleaned the old/area, and reapplied. That did a good job also.Vetericyn is good, too!

Thank you both very, very much. I will skip neosporin and concentrate on cleaning and drying, using Vetericyn. Please let me know if it’s important to get NuStock instead.

I have used Vetericyn on other hotspots-it worked well. Used the NuStock in fold only because I thought it would "stick in there" better. I think it's your choice.Both are good.
I would also keep both on hand(I do) for any problems(hopefully not needed-but good to have). Just keep up with the spot-it will be fine. Give Joey a big smooch from me!! [MENTION=14995]sisters3[/MENTION]

[MENTION=14995]sisters3[/MENTION] Everyone complains about the smell of NuStock! As I used to tell my children, when they were small,about medicine-"If it tastes/smells bad, it works good!"
NuStock comes in a large tube. You h ave to squeeze it around to try and mix it up. Also, it never goes bad. If it dries up, just ad some mineral oil to it.

I’ve cleaned with Vetericyn and dried really well. I will continue this twice daily until the NuStock arrives Tuesday. Thank you both again! Christine and Lynn, you’re wonderful!

Poor Joey! Hope she’s feeling better soon. Never experienced this particular issue but I have used both Nustock and vetericyn for other things with good results. I would also consider maybe trying coconut oil and or fresh aloe on it, but that’s just me! Good luck :)
