Hello, thank you for contacting us at Just Answer. It sounds like Bailey has a wound in a pretty uncomfortable place! This may just be a simple, superficial wound that will heal in a few days on its' own, but there is certainly the potential for it to be a more complicated problem. One of the most common issues I see with little dogs and wounds in this area, is an infected and ruptured anal gland. This can be quite painful and requires antibiotics and anti-inflammatories to heal. In light of the fact you are still seeing it oozing, I think this may be best if you have your veterinarian take a look and determine if Bailey needs some help beyond the silvadene cream. If possible, try to have her seen today, and best of luck!
