carmspack well pyroderma is a staph bacteria normally found on the skin -- which when the immune system is comprised is allowed to gain hold .

Vetericyn is very effective . I would strengthen the dogs immune system in addition to treating the symptom.

Sp00ks Ugh, Scabies. Take him to the vet. Can't know for sure until then. Summer is absolutely correct.

My kids got scabies from school once. OMG that was brutal to get rid of. The washing machine ran non stop for weeks. Dr. visits, etc.

SummerGSDLover Could it be an allergic reaction or a yeast infection? Id take him to the vet before trying to treat something when you don't know what it is. More than likely you'd have scabies also...

Skin rash - is it scabies?

Hiya,

Jack, now almost 8 mo, is having this weird redness (for 2 days) on his skin i.e. around the groin area and inside of ears... in fact in his ears there are two purple circles at the middle that become red towards the outside - when I first noticed, they were red. I've attached the photos. I don't think it's scabies, or is it? What can I do to cure it, please?

Look forward to your kind help.

Sincerely,
Ali.
