There is no alcohol in Listerine so it does not burn, and it evaporates so it disinfects and dries the hot spot. Be sure to use the original gold Listerine because the other colors can have sugar, etc. in them.

I use it for ears and hot spots, and it does work well.

I use the no name brand - like CVS's. Works great, if you catch the hot spot on time.

I've never tried Listerine but do use Gold Bond. Dries it right up and so far when caught early they have healed quickly with it.

Actually Melissa, the amber Listerine has 26.9% alcohol ( listed under inactive ingredients on the bottom)... that's what gives it such a kick. I've used it on scratches and open sores and I think it does burn, but the dogs don't seem to be phased by it.

It has worked well for me on my boys and isn't as messy as medicated Gold Bond Powder.

Can anyone tell me the exact healing process of a hot spot? I can't find anything on line. I finally had to break down and get the "cone of shame" for dear Mylo. Now his hot spot looks dry and crusty. Not sure what to do now and if that means we are on our way out of the wood.
