Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with Romeo. Can you post a picture of what you're seeing?
I'm sorry for my delay. Good job on the photo. That area looks irritated. It doesn't look like a more severe infection / sore though. Probably the best thing you can do for him is to take away his kong for a week so he's not chewing on that and having it rub that area. If he is chewing on things and they rub that area, it can keep it irritated. Keeping that area clean and dry is probably the best thing you can do as far as a home remedy attempt. Maybe towel drying his chin area after eating and drinking for a few days. I would be hopeful that keeping it clean and dry will let that irritation go away.
I would feel that just drying the chin area with a dry towel after he eats and drinks would have a lot of help here. If you were to ask it with a little antibacterial soap, just rinse well after and then pat it thoroughly dry. Sometimes the soap can get into the mouth when in that area, so don't be surprised if he salivates if some gets into the oral cavity. Saudi Arabia is one of the areas of the world that sounds very interesting. I probably will never have the chance to get there though! I think that if the area is still present on the 11th or if it is getting bigger / more uncomfortable, then that vet visit would be a good idea.
I'm hoping for the best for this little guy! Give him a good ear scratching for me since I can't do it myself.
