Can you upload a photo(s) of her nose to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. There are quite a few skin disorders that manifest on the nose.

This is most indicative of a nasal pyoderma - a facial bacterial skin infection that may occur secondary to trauma or insect bites. It appears as papules, pustules, erythema (reddening), alopecia, crusting, swelling, erosions, or ulcerative fistulae (which are what you've described) that develop over the bridge of the nose. Lesions may be painful. Treatment consists of the following:

1. Gentle, topical, warm water soaks with a chlorhexidine-containing shampoo should be used every 24 hours for 7-10 days to remove crusts.

2. Systemic antibiotics should be administered for a minimum of 3-4 weeks and continued 2 weeks beyond complete clinical resolution.

The prognosis is good but scarring may be a permanent sequela in some dogs. The shampoo and antibiot is available through Sara's vet. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I had her to the vet today. They took a culture of the fluid inside the blisters and there was no white blood cells at all just bacteria. They put her on a heavy antibiotic for 2 weeks with an antibacterial soap and cream to use as well. I have a follow up in two weeks.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Thank you for the update. Sara should do nicely.
