Dog Inner Thigh Rash Getting Worse with Skin Flaking By Tail
My dog has developed a rash in his inner thighs that is getting worse by the day. Also his skin is flaking pretty badly back by his tail.
He moves around normally, doesn't seem to be in pain. He is frequently licking it to keep it clean I suppose.
The rash on his inner thighs does not appear to be tender to the touch, although its pretty red and looks like it would be.
I have bathed him as usual. A friend of mine suggested I try BANIXX. Also to try a citronella shampoo. I have used over half of the bottle of Banixx and it does not appear to be getting any better. The directions for the BANIXX recommend applying it, liberally, 4 times a day. That is almost impossible with my work schedule. So perhaps I am not using it properly.
My dog is a 3 1/2 year old, male, Coon hound mix (I think Shephard...?). Normally very healthy and active. He is bathed regularly...LOVES to take a bath!
We live in North-central Florida. Fleas are a big problem here. But I have been able to keep the fleas "in check" by frequent baths.
Funds are REALLY tight for me right now and I need some advise on what I can do to help him out. Obviously I will take him in to the Veterinarian if need be, I am looking for some guidance right now.
I have read some related questions on your web site and see a few suggestions but want to know what's best for this situation.
Thank you! I appreciate your time on this.
