Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Does the odor smell like pus or really like rot?
What does the skin look like? Red, inflamed, dark, black?
Any pustules, pimples, scabs, scaling, wounds, or is the skin peeling away?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.

Hi again,
My apologies for the delay, as I had been called away to an emergency with one of my own patients. All you need to do with your photos is to post them either by using the paper clip icon on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
