Hello & welcome, Rob. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

There is nothing harmful in Aquaphor cream, so you can use this on Lucky as long as he doesn't lick this off. Otherwise, we'd want to salt water bathe (1tbsp salt to a pint warm water) and pat dry before application. Finally, if it is hive like and very irritated, OTC hydrocortisone cream can also be used to soothe this.

All the best,

Dr. B.
