Hello! I realize this thread is a bit old but I expect the issue of Gold Bond powder and hot spots is an ongoing one...
We are trying Gold Bond Extra Strength powder on our boy's first hot spot. How do you apply it, and how long should it be before we see improvement?
His hot spot is on the side of his face, under his ear flap. We've tried to trim away hair, but it's difficult since the spot is near his eye (and our guy isn't very cooperative with the treatment!). We are just squirting the Gold Bond powder on the hot spot; probably less than 10% actually reaches his skin. We've been doing this for 3 days. The spot doesn't seem worse, but doesn't seem better. We're wondering if this is really working or it's time to head to the vet.
Thanks in advance for any input an advice!
