I would be glad to help!
If there are true sores / wounds, t is recommended to clean the area itself. If possible, shaving with clippers (not scissors) is recommended to remove hair and debris. Please do not use scissors as you can accidentally cut the skin.
Then I would recommend purchasing a Chlorhexiderm shampoo, or other type of antibacterial shampoo from your local pet store to wash and scrub the area.
If your dog can lick at these areas, getting an e-collar from the pet store is also recommended to prevent further self-trauma. The E-collar should be used until the skin is healed.
Once cleaned, you can use topical neosporin on the area twice daily.
You can also go to the local grocery store in the first aid
section and purchase sterile gauze to cover the area.
Warm compressing the area for 10-15 minutes 2-3 times per day may also provide some relief.
If the skin does not heal well, or looks worse with the therapy above, there are times when a dog will need systemic antibiotics, which you can discuss with your veterinarian...
But i hope the above information is helpful in making your dog feel better!____________________________________________________________________
