Updated-- Well, after talking with my breeder this morning, I got the scissors out and cut away all the hair from the hot spot. I REALLY did not want to do this as I have a trial this weekend, and I want my boy to look pretty But, already, the spot is much drier!!! I am treating it with the gentamycin spray the vet gave me last time and also Gold Bond. When I dump the Gold Bond on it, you can hardly notice his hair is missing
My boy broke out with a nice icky hot spot on his back, just below his shoulders, where his hair is very thick and always tends to stay wet after swimming. It's a constant trouble spot for us.
Used Gold Bond on it yesterday and all the hair came out in big glumps. It's about the size of a quarter and is very raw/bloody.
Started using the spray the vet gave me last time on it and already it's improving.
Why does this always seem to happen before a show??? Thankfully he does have surrounding hair that helps hide it...
hate those suckers. it took months for seamus' to improve.

Poor Ruger. Hope it heals up quickly.

Rudy doesn't usually have a hot spot like that but once in a while he will get a clump of hair on his tail or near his butt and I comb it out.* It comes out in hunks. It is strange.
Poor Ruger. I hope it heals up quickly.
Dang I hate those things. Scared the )&$# out of me the first time
I hate those things. They always look so painful. Murray had a huge one when we adopted him. It started at his ear and ended at his shoulder and encompassed the entire left side of his neck. It was probably 6" in diameter. Ugggh...it grosses me out just to think about it.
I have used the Gold Bond as well and it has worked wonders. (Thank you Sandy).
Have you guys tried N'zymes - they are supposed to be very helpful in clearing them up
