I saw this on Lincoln. Ive been able to get a good shot where as before I havent been. They start as pea like lumps of different sizes under his skin then sometimes they go away, sometimes they turn into this
Yes, thats a hole in his skin. He has a couple. Im going to bring him into the vet with me when I bring Ruby in today to see what he thinks since hes never seen it like this before. With Rubys issues and Lincolns on going meds im afraid seeing a specialist for this issue is out of the question as is anything expensive. I just want opinions on what it could be so I can look into it and see which way I want to do. I really dont think this is allergy related. The skin is also flake central and coming off in thick flakes around the area (not in the pic as the pic was taken after I bathed the area in Hexadine Shampoo. Also, it smells like a horse barn, thats about as accurate as I can get it.
Ideas please? I have already done a skin scrape, it showed staph. (the skin scrape was done on a previous infection but all are like this one). Not sure if the staph he was seeing was normal skin bacteria or an overload of it. Have tried Orbax and Cephalexin as antibiotics. Longest course was 7 weeks on Cephalexin. Ive tried a million shampoos, creams etc. Some work for a while, some dont work at all. Antibiotics get rid of it but it comes right back so im not sure what to think anymore.
