My dog came down with a hit spot , within goes it grew to the size of my palm. I have been treating with povidone iodine, mixed with distilled water several times a day along with a very thin layer of hydrocortisone cream, he also gets benadryl daily for skin allergies. My question is there is a large scab developing and it seems to be peeling away from the edges of his skin, is there another treatment I should look into?
Backstory: My dog was diagnosed with meningitis in November,
Backstory: My dog was diagnosed with meningitis in November, and has been on steroids since. He started at 50mg/day, and is now down to 15mg/day, should be dropping down again next week. He had an abscess in his lip that was drained back in February, and he had a red raw/irritated type of spot on the outside of his cheek shortly after. It didn't get any bigger and the vet figured it was just something he rubbed raw and the hair wasn't growing back. I noticed it slowly sort of getting a bit bigger, not really healing. He had a check up on 5/22 and the vet said it could be mites, a fungal infection like ringworm, or again, just rubbed raw, like chapped lips almost. He took a scraping and a hair sample, but said it would be three weeks before results. In the meantime he gave me ketohex to wipe it with 2x a day, and also said rub vitamin E from a capsule on it. My question is... it seems to have gotten worse. It's definitely bigger than it was 10 days ago (photo 1 is 10 days ago, photo 2 is tonight). It doesn't seem to bother him. He lets me rub the wipe on it, he doesn't paw at it or scratch it. But it's definitely gotten larger in area

My dog had a hydrocortisone shot on Saturday, and I've noticed that he seems very subdued and lethargic since then. Is this a likely side effect? How long can I expect it to last?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: His name is ***** ***** he's 18 months old. He has food allergies and is currently on an elimination diet, but had chewed raw spots on two of his legs, so the vet recommended a shot to calm things down.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Ralph?Customer: He also has an ear infection - he's had 3 of those over the past few months, the vet thinks also likely related to his allergies.
