I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The image appears to represent a pyotraumatic dermatitis - a "hot spot". This usually appears secondary to my patient excoriating its skin by biting and scratching to the point of ulcerating the skin which then becomes secondarily infected. An allergic dermatitis is most common - allergies to flea saliva, environmental allergens such as pollens, molds, dust, and dust mites, etc., as well as food intolerance are considered. Lesions such as these have the surrounding hair shaved away, cleansed with an antimicrobial solution such as chlorhexidine, and a systemic corticosteroid +/- antibiotic prescribed. A topical spray that addressed inflammation and infection may be useful as well. A thorough physical exam and history should be taken in an attempt to clarify what my patient may be allergic to. Please ignore our conversation if you've already had your Labradoodle attended to by the vet and have no need to continue on here.
