Hi. Thank you for reposting your question. If you want to try a topical treatment, then use a chlorihexidene based shampoo (avoiding the eyes) and let sit on the lesions for 5 minutes before wiping off. This will help if it is a bacterial infection alone. If the lesions are not resolving, then an evaluation by your local veterinarian with a skin scrape and cytology could help determine if mange or ring worm are possible. Your local veterinarian could then prescribe the appropriate medication. Sometimes it just takes oral antibiotics if there is a deeper bacterial infection. If the lesions are isolated to the face, then an immune mediated disease such as pemphigus or dermatomyositis is possible. These are diagnosed with a skin biopsy at your local veterinary hospital. Please ask any follow up questions. If you are satisfied with my response, then please take time to rate my answer. You can continue posting on this thread for a couple of days, even after rating. Take care.
