Jankura. My dog has a rash around s groin area. It is red

Customer Question

Hi Dr Jankura. My dog has a rash around his groin area. It is red and quite warm, dry in some patches. He has been treated with antibiotics approx 6 months ago for a similar looking rash, and it cleared up. The same antibiotics are now doing nothing. He doesn't seem itchy at all, just quieter than usual.

Can you upload a photo of this rash to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if that icon is visible) or you can use an external app such as or I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.

Hi Dr Salkin,
Thank you for your prompt reply. I wasn't able to attach a photo which is why there has been a delay in my response. I have since taken him to the vet and he is now on more specific antibiotics and a moisturising cream. The vet suspects perhaps some kind of immune disorder causing the outbreaks and infection, maybe lupus? He has some pigmentation loss on his belly when he gets this rash too.
Kind regards, Lauren

I understand. My best to Spencer!
