So first of all, here's the album of the problem from just a moment ago which shows the location and scale: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet
And as for the story: I have a 6yo dog (bernese mountain dog-like mutt
) and some time around two weeks ago I spotted a wet spot, around 1.5-2cm in diameter, completely flat around right side of his neck. It wasn't painful to the touch and I guess it was a result of scratching so it may have been itchy. He's tried to scratch it now and then - not like he was trying to do it all the time but from time to time he did.
After I spotted it, I was using baby powder on it to make it less itchy and dry it a bit. As a consequence, a scab appeared and within a week it was gone and new, clean skin was visible and hair started to grow there.
The problem is, after the scab went away, apart from the fresh, healthy skin underneath, a red pimple also appeared (which was not visible initially or during the forming of the scab) and it's there for the past 5 days or so, getting neither larger nor smaller. It still isn't painful to the touch, it's no longer itchy I guess cause my dog doesn't try to scratch there any more than the norm but still, it's there.
What could that be? I'm gonna visit the vet in the upcoming days but still, since I can't manage to do this today and I'm not sure whether I'll be able to tomorrow, I figured I might as well ask and see if maybe someone had already seen something like this and may hazard a guess what that is
