Hello again

Sorry to hear Money is uncomfortable, however I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. The first thing to do is to remove the dog's collar until the rash heals, perhaps consider using a harness. Then you can often handle this sort of skin condition on a home remedy basis by clipping the hair from the affected area, washing it gently in warm salt water, dabbing it dry and then applying the likes of Neosporin. Try this twice a day for a week.

2. Of course some dogs may need prescription drugs such as antibiotics from your vet if the above method is not successful. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.
