Hey guys first time posting,
My dog Luna has developed this underarm rash. She is a Boston Terrier/ Pitbull/ Boxer mix. I don't know what it is but it looks like it's gotten worse. It's only on one armpit and I haven't changed her diet significantly. I didn't know what any of you made of it or what you think if I should take her to the vet or not.
Each image is a different armpit.

Yes, the vet needs to determine if it's an allergy (food or environment), a bacterial or fungal infection or something else. They'll hopefully be able to figure it out by taking a quick skin scraping and looking at it with a microscope. Each has a different treatment. It's probably nothing serious, but your dog will be happier after treatment.
