Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist who has over 40 years of experience raising and showing rabbits. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. Some additional information will be useful. Is the Terramycin labeled for use in eyes? Is the area that popped up oozing anything? How big is it? Thank you.
