About a week ago, my dog who is 3 years old developed a hot spot on the inside of one of his back legs. I kept it as clean as possible and applied some neosporin, and hydrocortisone cream to it a couple times a day. It started to get better, but then I noticed something was wrong with his nose yesterday.
This may be completely unrelated, not sure. My dog has a full black nose, and inside one of his nostrils, the black looked like it was starting to peel away. Now there is a pinkish red skin spot exposed in and around the outside of his right nostril. That nostril is a little inflamed and wet inside, where the other is dry and normal looking. Could this have been caused from him licking and biting at his hot spot too much?
If not the only other thing that I can think of is that a couple days ago, I came home and he was trying to play with a bee that was on the ground in our yard. If he got stung by the bee, could this be a reaction to that? He never acted like anything was wrong, and I never saw a stinger in his nose.
Another thought was that I had taken him to the beach 3 days before. This was his first time there for a long period of time. He was playing in the water and out in the sun for about 3-4 hours. Could too much sun have harmed his nose?
Today I went to the Vet, and she didn’t have much information for me. She just game me some cream for both his hotspot and nose. She speaks very broken English, and didn’t seem like she knew what the problem was with his nose. She just said that he needs sunscreen on his nose when in the sun for a long period of time.
If anyone has any ides what could have caused this, please post a comment below.
