We got one last week and fixed it in 2 days, now its healing. Petsmart has a hotspot antimicrobial, its blue and thick in clear bottle. Also we use veteracyn to clean several times a day. You can go to the vet or you can give him a days with home remedy and see if it's better. Hot spots are very common so I feel like its a good idea to learn how to treat them.

also the vet will probably give you the same stuff as over the counter and only in sever cases they prescribe antibiotic, mostly for secondery infection.
