She had a sebaceous cyst open. I've cleaned it, but I'm won

Customer Question

She had a sebaceous cyst open. I've cleaned it, but I'm wondering if I can put some ointment on it.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dog?
Customer: There isn't a problem, she gets them all the time, I just don't want it to get infected.
JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?
Customer: It doesn't appear to hurt her
JA: OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Sammy 9 years
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sammy?
Customer: Nope. She has had many of these cysts. This opening is just larger than the others and shallow. I don't want it to get infected.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) What ointment do you have available? 2) When did the cyst open?

Erika, do you still need assistance with Sammy?
