oh no ....

Hello friends!

I gave Tillie a bath this morning and as I was blow drying her I caught glimpses of some very red, inflamed skin on her side ... I invenstigated further and discovered there are even some small 'fissures' or cracks within this red area, and some bumps that may develop into sores. My dh wants to wait over the weekend before I take her in, but of course I am worried sick wondering what is going on.
I tried to get some pictures, it seems it's about the length and width of a dollar bill, seems slightly puffy and warm to the touch ... any ideas of what is going on?
I am assuming (and hoping) that it may be a reaction to the tylan powder I have been giving her for her incredibly wet/runny eyes... It's been close to 2 weeks since I started giving it to her... praying by stopping the powder it may go away... fingers crossed.

Here are a couple pics I took of it...

her skin is normally a VERY pale pink, almost white color...

Ohh If it is an allergic reaction to the tylan maybe some Benadryl could help. If it were Ache, I would try giving her some Benadryl today and tomorrow and see if there is some improvement. If not, then the vet should take a look. I hope she gets better soon.

I give Ache 1/2 tablet of 25 mg but she is 12.5 lbs and Tillie is smaller so maybe you should call the vet and they can tell you how much and if it is a good idea for Tillie, because of her allergies.

Awww...poor Tillie..that looks angry. I give childrens chewable benadryl at 1 mg per pound for bug bites and vacc reaction per my Dr. Always check with your own vet tho first.
Maybe some bug bites??? I have seen lots of spiders around here this time of year.
Keep us posted.

Does it look like there are bite places or red spots or is it mostly red skin? I have been told to not give Children's benedryl, but to use the regular (no sinus, etc)...but check with your vet..always the safest way...keep us posted..

I don't have any advice, but want to say that I hope sweet Tillie is feeling better FAST!!! (I'm a worrier, so I'd already have her at the vet, without consulting DH )

Did you use anything different with bathing or cream rinses, sprays?
