Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. Dermoplast just has a numbing agent and nothing to treat the underlying problem.
You can use the Dermoplast as long as he does not lick a lot off.
It looks like it may be a skin infection.
So I would mix over the counter hydrocortisone cream and neosporin 50:50. Apply that three times a day.
It is not toxic if he licks it.
As long as he is not on any other medication you can give him benadryl for itching. The human benadryl is fine. 1 mg of benadryl, per each pound of dog, every 12 hours as needed. For example a 25 pound dog takes 25 mg of benadryl every 12 hours.
Wash him with a gentle oatmeal dog shampoo or human aveeno oatmeal shampoo to remove any allergens that may still be on his skin.
If his skin is still that red and inflamed two days from now he will need to see the vet as he probably needs oral antibiotics.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
