misslesleedavis1 After a nice cool bath, we shaved around the area, cleaned it out with some warm water to get the crud out then sprayed a layer if vetericyn on it. Im hoping it starts to look less painful by the end of the weekend.

misslesleedavis1 okay, yes i was planning on just doing a cool water rinse minus the shampoo thank you for your advice,

Pax8 If it's an allergen, I would probably do a rinse down. I don't know about shampoo. Unless it's a very gentle, tearless type and you can avoid getting it in the sores, I would probably just do a rinse. You could also put a small cup of baking soda in with the bath water. Though again, I'd avoid getting it in the sore.

There's not much else I would do with the open one besides rub the gunk off with a warm wet towel and put on some neosporin. It really just needs an antibacterial and access to the open air without him scratching or chewing at it.

misslesleedavis1 We took him out for a walk yesterday with his buds, he was leashed and he was rolling around the grass. It may be caused by something the town used to spray, it was wet with saliva and goopy with blood but he very well could have chewed a hole in himself if the itching was that intense. Shiggies and Dex are okay but they did not roll they ran thru..what takes itch out so he wont damage himself further? will a cool bath help to rid what ever may be on his coat?

Pax8 Hmm, if it was wet, then he may be chewing. I would think that would be saliva. Do you know if he is allergic to anything? Maybe he was itching at an allergen?

A cone sounds like a good idea while you treat it.
