My lab gets these allergy hot spots. My dad told me to put some brown vaseline on the spots. Does anyone know where I can find some? Knowing my dad I'd probably have to go back to the mid 50's to find it!

Thanks in advance!

I shave the area and use MTG on hot spots, you get it at Tractor Supply near the fly spray

Try Sulfadene from Walmart. It cures hot spots right up.

He meant oil mixed in vasoline, because the petroleum jelly will seal and the oil will kill the infestation.

Try any drug store

Sometimes called black salve, drawing salve or draw-out salve and Carbolated or Medicated Vaseline*

The historic healer for cuts, burns, and more. Watkins Petro-Carbo Salve is still a must for every home medicine cabinet and first-aid kit.

I know an old time dog hunter said burnt motor oil and sulfur mixed to a cake like batter was good for blad spots on dogs, killed the mites and the oil smothered the mites and stuck to the skin.

CVS or Walgreen's will have it. It is just the medicated vasoline.

A&D ointment is sort of brown. And it contains petroleum jelly. But most vets discourage the use of creams and ointments. Hot spots aren't just dry skin. They are a rash caused by inflammation - a dermatitis. The best thing to do is keep the area clean and dry and treat the underlying cause of the inflammation. Your vet may prescribe antibiotics, topical drying spray or a medicated shampoo.

Hot Spots (Acute Moist Dermatitis, Pyotraumatic Dermatitis, Superficial Pyoderma

Authored by: Becky Lundgren, DVM



Large hot spot near ear

A hot spot is a superficial skin infection that results when the normal skin bacteria overrun the skin’s defenses as a result of damage to the skin surface. This is most often started by the dog chewing or scratching at the site. In the first stages of the formation of a hot spot, the skin becomes moist, inflamed (red), pruritic (itchy), and infected. Pus oozes from the damaged skin as bacterial infection sets in. The dried pus and damaged skin surface from the infection will form a tightly-adhered crust, and the dog will lose hair over the infection site. Frequently, dogs show pain when the site is touched at this stage.

Hot spots can enlarge rapidly, so early diagnosis – before your pet’s hot spot involves a large area of the body -- is important. Both dogs and cats can get hot spots, although dogs with dense undercoats are more likely to develop the problem than smooth-coated dogs or cats are. Hot spots are more common during hot, humid weather, but can occur year-round, depending on the inciting cause.

Causes

Anything that creates irritation to the skin, causing the pet to chew or scratch at the site, can cause a hot spot. Insect (flea/fly/etc.) bites, allergies, excess skin-surface moisture, heavy/dense hair coats, matted hair, skin scrapes, etc. Saliva accumulation under a hair coat, as a result of the itchy pet chewing on himself, can result in hot spots. Dogs and cats always have a bacterium near the mouth called Staphylococcus intermedius. This type of Staph, not usually at all contagious to people, is the most common infection found in hot spots.

The location of the hot spots may help your veterinarian determine the underlying cause of the problem. A hot spot over the hip could indicate flea infestation, hip arthritis, **** gland infection, etc., just as a hot spot near an ear could indicate an ear problem, allergy/dental/nerve irritation, etc.

Treatment

The first step your veterinarian will take is to clip or shave and clean the inflamed/infected area to allow the air to get to it. (Moisture and pus trapped on the skin makes the hot spot worse.) Clipping and cleaning will allow your veterinarian to see how large the inflamed area is. Hot spots can be painful, so sedation or anesthesia may be necessary in order to shave and clean the spot properly. Your veterinarian may need to perform cytology or culture the hot spot, to determine the best antibiotic to use during the treatment phase.

Treatment may involve antibiotics (topical and/or systemic, either oral or injectable); anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); glucocorticoids (steroids to reduce itchiness, pain, and swelling); topical medications; or e-collars or similar collars to prevent your pet from bothering the infected area.

The treatment your veterinarian chooses will depend on how bad the problem is, how much pain the animal is in, how long the problem has been going on, and if the problem is a recurring one. Some pets may get one or two hot spots and then never get another one again, while some pets may have frequent recurrences.

My lab got these as well. I changed his food and started giving flax seed oil pill daily as recommended by my vet. He hadnt had them since. If it is mange Ive heard used motoroil will cure it. My vet said it is common with labs. He said it could be food or even plant allergy, but changing the food was the cure for mine.
