My dog has what looks like a pimple on his belly. It looks

Resolved Question:

My dog has what looks like a pimple on his belly. It looks like a whitehead (like a bump with white pus under the skin) and it is a little red around the bump. I just noticed this; should I go to the vet?

Does he just have one area like this?


Does his skin seem itchy at all?



Customer: replied 8 years ago.
He only has one "pimple" on his lower abdomen. He has an itchy nose and eyes and sneezes sometimes.

He should be alright if you clean the area with an antibacterial soap and water, suds it up, anhd rinse it. You can do this two times a day for three days or so and it should be fine. If you see the area spread, however, then your dog may need some antibiotics to take by mouth. Usually the cases that need medications are ones that invovle a large area of the body and have many of those pimple type lesions.
