I doubt in a time frame to go out n pee n back in all that appeared. Have you checked between the toes and if so is there Any bumps/cyst in there? Looks like a big pimple.

I checked but no, nothing, is not a pimple, and now is worst , he has been scratching the area and hurt it more, I applied hidrocortisone and I'm looking at him for care that he isn't continue hurting his toe

It looks like a hotspot... was it moist before you put hydrocortisone on it?

It could be the beginning of an interdigital cyst.

I was thinking the same because that’s how Duke’s Interdigital cysts started. Red on top n sides, then the cyst and finally going all red to the end of the inner paw/toes. It can also be a hotspot like Christine mentioned.

[MENTION=15159]Marycarmen[/MENTION] you will need to clean it again and put like a baby breathable sock on it (not tight) so he doesn’t lick it till you see the vet. “IF” it’s IC, post me with a reply and I will give you the recipe I used on Duke. It really works. Antibiotics does “not” cure IC as they always come back. It’s simply just one of them things. Antibiotics will just bring the immune system down for no reason. BUT for sure do go see the vet first.

Hotspots are due to weaken immune system... what food are you feeding?

Nothing wrong with your English :) Pinch area, was bloody n left a hole? Sounds like indigital cyst.
