Hot Spots on Dogs and How to Treat Them

A hotspot (also referred to as pyotramatic or moist dermatitis) is a condition that involves a part of skin that has become inflamed and infected. The affected skin is typically  seen as a wet oozing reddened patch that’s painful and very uncomfortable for the dog. Additionally hair loss may  be seen. Continued licking and chewing at the affected spot worsens the condition dramatically.

What causes hot spots and might they be prevented?

Hot spots in dogs are caused by anything that causes aggravation or itchiness to the skin. Some common triggers are allergies to  grasses, trees, weeds, dust mites etc , food allergies, fleas, mites, insect bites and skin wounds. A bacterial infection of the skin develops by taking advantage of the broken and inflamed skin. The infection is usually deep within the dog’s skin and additionally to the wet oozing look there is often an odour present.
