Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. Can you take a picture of the mole and post it for me to view it? Can you do the same for the hot spot?
I'll check them out.
Good job on the pictures. That pigmented area on the left side of his nose region is pretty big. Do you feel it is growing? Has it been that size for quite some time? I'll be honest and say that its size and pigmentation have me concerned for a melanoma. What would be the best for her is to have her seen and they can evaluate it up close. It may be something that needs biopsied to determine the specific origin of it. The hot spot area isn't looking too bad at this time, but with that dense fur, it most likely will really fire up soon. With hot spots, I like to shave the hair all off the region affected so it can be aired out and allowed to dry. A course of oral antibiotics in combination with that can really get on top of things quickly and not let them get bigger and bigger
If it is growing, then getting it biopsied will be the best thing most likely.
