My baby has a small bald patch on her forehead, that i have noticed where the skin is really dry. Its actually been there for maybe a month, i think it originally started when i pulled a tick from that area (w/o tweezers because we werent home when i noticed it). When i did this i also plucked a few hairs. I think from that point on it must have itched her and she continued to scratch at it.
Is there something i can put on it to sooth any itching,and help the skin heal and not be so dry? Do you guys think the hair will grow back ?? I feel really bad for her, and everybody asks the first thing they see her, what happened to her head?
Its hard to catch her in the act..but i think so a few times. Also it looks redder on some days, and flaky.. Could something like vasoline help the skin recover? I'm afraid of using anythign that could have adverse effects..
to my eye it looks a little mangy . evidence is the brittle broken hair shafts . look into Defendex VETiONX Defendex - Fleas, Mange and Scabies Symptom Relief Treatment Shampoo for the external and then look to better nutrition to strengthen the immune system , which may have been down or challenged by the tick , which may have been an issue around the timeline of a vaccination .
I am thinking mange because the pinkness is moving over to the dogs left eye. Look at where the beginning , broad part of the left eye brow begins , look below , near to the eyelash and you will see a dot of pink with some red irritation and then further down at the corner of the eye on the bridge of the muzzle another hint of pink .
Carm - definetly a valid concern. Although...Maddie had a run in with a wire fence on thanksgiving...Literally. We arrived at my fathers house which is surrounded by woods, and i let her out of the car and she went running after a squirrel. Ran right into a deer fence out in the woods head on, full speed. She had all sorts of cuts on face, which healed up amazingly fast. Maybe that is part of what you are seeing near the eye. Her left eye was nearly swollen shut for a while, the site of the accident broke my hear into a 1000x pieces
That looks a lot like Dolly's head when she had mange. I noticed it and didn't think much of it until within' a few days (it seems) it was spreading rapidly. A skin-scrape should be able to rule it out. A few meds and a month or so it was filling back in.
