My dogs butt is raw. Vet thinks she ate something. She has bad diahreea. Is there a cream or something I can put on it? She's an English bulldog so she can't reach her butt to clean it.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
I am very sorry to hear that she has so many issues bombarding her all at once. In regards ***** ***** her sore bottom, you do first want to make sure you keep it regularly cleaned. You can use dilute chlorohexidine or mild salt water to this and avoid her developing a dermatitis. As well, make sure to pat the area dry afterwards. In regards ***** ***** you can request that her vet dispense Fuciderm. This is a very good topical treatment for irritating skin around the rectum. Otherwise, you can alternate applying an OTC hydrocortisone cream and antibiotic cream. The first will soothe the inflammation and the second help keep infection away. And if her vet can halt that diarrhea, then we'd expect this to all settle for her.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
