Hi everyone...

Last night I was cleaning Daezies face and I notice 4 bumps like pimples on her forehead, right between the eyes. I don't know how else to discribe them but they look like pimples after you try to squeeze it out, then is crusty and a little bloody with white/yelloish stuff. Do you know what I mean.

they are alittle smaller than the size of a lentile.

I don;t think anything bite her or at least I didnt notice her in pain or anything like that. so I was thinking they might be pimples?



Thanks

Lady had one of these recently on her back and her vet told me it was an infected hair follicle. It got quite big and red over several months. She just "expressed" it - in other words, popped it.

Apparently it can be associated with food allergies.

Alex is prone to get little "pimples" inside his thighs and around the pecker area. They did a scratching and it came back as staph infection. The treatment was with Clavamox. But I found out that I could get rid of them by pressing them open and applying isopropyl alcohol 91% to the area. We have not used Clavamox since. But we are lucky that the pimples stay localized to that area, so it's just a small area to treat. Some dogs have staph infections all over the body.

I already have a vet appt. but I was wondering:

do you guys think she got that form the groomer? she went to the groomer on Sat morning and I don't remember her having anything on her head before sat?

Could she have pick up the infection at the groomer's?

A lot of time skin infections are secondary to allergies, so she could be reacting to a shampoo or product the groomer used. It could be totally unrelated, too. If it is an infection, you might bring your own shampoo for the groomer to use next time or request a gentle, hypoallergenic, or oatmeal shampoo. I have to be careful about what products I use on my own dogs and client dogs because I have an allergic reaction on my hands from many of them.

So the vet said, Daezie has a skin infection. the vet prescribe cefa-drops for 4 weeks, x2 a day. we have an appt on the 20th of this month to check how her condition is going.

I know for sure we are not going back to that groomer, which I think thats were she got that infection

Poor little Daezie! I hope she gets better soon! You should really complain to that groomer about what happened.. I'd be way mad if Tuffy came back with a skin infection!
