Hotspot on stomach

Hello
I have had my lab for 3 years and he has just developed his first hotspot close to his groin/stomach area. I'm at a loss for how to treat it because I can't wrap a bandage around his whole body - I technically could but I would probably come home to him having ripped it off. Does anyone have any advice for how to treat this/stop him from licking it??

Thank you all!

As much as I don't like them, might have to wear an Elizabethan collar. Not a big fan of the big plastic ones, search google, lots of people have gotten creative with keeping their dog from licking.

I've never heard of "hotspots," and had to look it up. I agree that the cone collar is the only way to prevent the dog from getting to it.

More often than not, a Vet can successfully treat a dog for hot spots. Your Vet can also eliminate or confirm the cause, which could be a localized infection, ringworm, or parasite bites. If he were mine, we would be making a trip to the Vets, just to be sure!

I use Vetricin when we get those, and they start to dry up and heal within a day. Watch them for a little bit to he sure they leave it alone while it dries. Once it dries, they are soothed and leave it alone. Just re apply daily or a couple of times a day if needed.
