My little sister Addie Mae has developed a terrible rash on the front of her chest for some unknown reason. By the time Mummy investigated the reason for all of the scratching, she had already scratched in raw! Now Mummy has shaved the hair down in that area and applied some medicinal ointment to the area and put a t-shirt on her to keep her from scratching it. Over the past few days it has slowly gotten better but poor little Addie has been very comfortable and itchy. We have not determined WHAT caused it…nothing in her diet has changed. Maybe a bug bit her? Do things like this ever happen with your babies???
I am so sorry to hear that Addie Mae has been uncomfortable. Good thing Mummy knew what to do for her. Yes, unfortunately things do happen. One time Ollie went out to potty and got into a bunch of ticks. His hair was black so I didn’t notice them right away. When we went to the vet he said he had scrached himself all over. He had to have a special bath and medicine. He felt so much better within a few days. I wash and cleaned everything he had. Hope you figure out why and what, but glad she… Read more »
Ohhhh noo how terrible! She is doing better and the raw area is drying up but Mummy can tell she is still itching.
Oh my! Hope it clears up soon. This time last year Lady Kira was in “her” yard & got strayed by a ?. Last week a raccoon ? visited her. Nature happens. Be well Addie Mae. Hope you & her sisters are all being extra nice to her Millie, ???
Ohhh nooo!!!! I guess things could be worse! It is slowly getting better.
Oh poor little Addie Mae! Hugs little sweetie. A little rescue, Cody, had no hair, scratched himself raw. The vet determined his problem was caused by extensive previous steroids. Cody itched, got steroids, itched, steroids. He was 8 when he came to live with us. Our vet gave anti-itch shot, special shampoo. I put a shirt on him and a donut to keep him from gnawing on himself. About 8 months later, he had beautiful hair, no steroids, no itching. His eyes and organs were quite damaged from the steroids. He was happy and much loved until time to cross… Read more »
Look at how beautiful he is!!!! My goodness!!! What a terrible time he has had but he surely found the right home and the right vet!!! Hopefully Addie is all cleared up in a few days.
Awe! Poor Addie May. I’ve seen where other Yorkies sometimes get a yeast infection (rash) on their tummies, but I’ve never had to deal with those symptoms. I hope she heals quickly!
Hmmmmm I wonder if it started as a yeast infection???? But it’s not on her tummy… it’s all the way up between her two front legs in the middle of her chest…. like at the base of her neck.
Poor Addie Mae!!!! I’ve never gotten it and I hope I don’t! Hugs sweet girl!!!! Love and kisses, Trixie
You are lucky…. hopefully Addie will be all cleared up in a few more days.
Prayers for sweet Addie??
Thank you so very much. KISS KISS
Poor Addie. Get better soon.
Thank you very much… it is slowly improving.
harley scratched his back where his tail curls over so didn’t see it till it had scapes up. i washed it and put betadine on it. it cleared up. vet said no idea what caused it but it didn’t itch him. think he may have done it crawling under the bed.
Ohhhh no! I have been putting neosporin and triple care wound ointment on it but maybe I should try some betadine too just to clean it really good!
Get well soon Addie May!!??
Thank you very much! KISS KISS
Poor sweetie! The itchies are NO fun! I hope you feel better soon! ?
Thank you… it is slowly getting better.
Yes we just had a problem with our Dewey it was like a hot spot. I have some white powder I got from the vet. It is called Neo~Predef rwith Tetracaine Powder. It works wonderful. I think you need to get it from a vet or get a precipitous for it. I hope she is better real soon. Hugs and kisses for Aiden Mae
If this isn’t better in another day or two we will ask our vet about that… thank you.
A few years ago my little naked girl sat on a ants nest had to take her to our vets a few hrs later and that’s when I found out what had happened. She was very paranoid about bugs after that. Don’t blame her though.
OMGOSH that sounds so painful! I know she is scared of bugs for sure!!!
Awww…poor little Addie Mae! No worries mummy will make it all better. My Bella got a bite on her leg the other day and I saw her scratching and biting at it so I put an itching healing cream on her too. It is organic and healthy so if she licks it she won’t get sick. She’s been getting better too. You are not alone Addie Mae! I hope you feel better real soon. ❤❤❤???
UGH! I’m dealing with this sorta thing with my Scruffy he had chewed/scratched a place raw on his right hip! I have a medical spray for hot spots from the Vet to use twice a day… I give him baths … I tried putting pj’s on him…. I put salve on it… I put peroxide on it…… I put essential oils on it…… ( not all at the same time LOL ) and just when it seems like it’s looking better he starts to chew at it again! smh This happened last summer too and when I took him to… Read more »
Our Millee Marie gets occasional itchiness and her skin around her armpits looks dry. I spray her with Zymox Topical Spray, Hydrocortisone 1%. And add the little t-shirt. It clears up right away. Also, I can’t feed anything with chicken, beef, or pork as they have developed an allergy to them.
Get well soon sweet Addie Mae!
I am so sorry for Addie – I pray she is feeling better soon. My dog hasn’t had any problems but I have. It is so annoying
Ugh. I hope Addie Mae feels better soon. Love you all
Oh my goodness, I was so scared thinking something very bad had happened. My heart skipped a beat on that one. I dont often get a chance to check in on you all. So busy as my husband is total care. He no longer walks. Plus watching my two granddaughters daily. I became their teacher and it looks like we’ll be homeschooling in Aug when school starts up again. They tell us social distance. How can you do that on a crowded bus! I do not fear this virus. I believe the masks are not helpful unless you work in… Read more »
Oh no, I hope she gets better soon. One of our Yorkies had dry skin but nothing like that.
Oh, no! Poor sweet little girl. So glad Mummi was able to catch it so now she can start healing and feeling better soon! Kisses ?
We hope that she feels better! Never had anything like that here! Sounds like it was a reaction to something. Could most definitely be a bug bite! Hope she feels better!!!! ?❤️?
Wow!, Yes, my buddy Tacker has had a rash on his underside the last couple weeks. I thought it was maybe from his “diapers’ but it’s also on his chest and bony prominences by all four legs, and sometimes under his neck. some of it looks like hives. I’ve been washing him frequently, underneath and also put some cream on which stopped the scratching. Thought it was gone, but no. I have some Metacam drops the vet had prescribed in the Spring for allergies, and I’ve given him a drop or two as prescribed daily and it is helping. The… Read more »
Poor Addie Mae. One of my yorkies had a problem with itching. I started using Burts Bees soothing hot spot shampoo and it seemed to help. Burt’s Bees also has a hot spot spray for relieving itching. I like their products because they use natural ingredients. I hope Addie Mae continues to improve.
Aww poor baby
Poor sweet AddieMae. I have good luck using Colloidal Silver. Lol. I use it for insect bites on myself and the dogs if they have a rash in the butt area. It is as good as benedryl. Hugs
Sorry Addie Mae! Allie has Allergies and is on CYTOPOINT shots every other month. Awesome Product. Allie weighs 6lbs and is given 1/4 AM and 1/4 PM Zyrtec OTC Human allergy medication. You can also use OTC Human Hydrocortisone 1% for itches that become red or bloody! In between baths I take generic Oatmeal and blend it into fine powder – place a table spoon+ in an old nylon sock and let it sit in a plastic cup then rinse Addie off – no soap needs and pour the Oatmeal solution. Helps with the scratching!
Poor little Addie Mae, mommie will take good care of her.
I pray that it goes away soon. She has great care
Bless her heart… get better little lady.
Could be heat rash?
Not to my pups, thank goodness, but to me from a bug bite! My heart goes out to sweet little Addie Mae. Feel better soon, precious!
Oh no poor Addie Mae! Yes this has happened to our Arabella. We believe it was a bug bit. I’m glad she is much much better. Hugs.
I am sorry Addie Mae has the rash. Poor baby! My Mitzi had a terrible time with allergies . She would break out often. We finally had her allergy tested and it turned out that she had a chicken allergy. We had been giving her food with chicken for years. We had no idea! We switched her to another food and she didn’t have any more problems! I hope Mummy finds the cause quickly and Addie Mae has a speedy recovery.
Tell Mummy that I was scratching too. I went to the Dogter yesterday & she said it was staph. My Mummy has to bathe that area once daily with medicated shampoo. I have to get wrapped in a towel & I get held while it soaks on my skin. I’m not complaining though, because I’m a baby! Please tell Addie Mae to feel better soon.
Love & kisses
I had a pomeranian once that developed a rash on her chest but it was because when she drank she would get her hair in it and in sometimes I wouldn’t get to dry it off soon enough so she actually developed a yeast infection. This is probably something else. Poor Addie Mae
Feel better Addie Mae. My late maltipoo got skin rashes. She was on apoquel. I really dont recommend it though. I think caused her heart failure
Millie I just got your email at 8:05 pm.
I’m sorry to hear this about Addie Mae. I hope the ointment helps her. Maybe it’s a heat rash from being so hot or a uggy buggy bit her.
Poor Addie Mae …hope you feel better soon. Zoe and Chanel are sending you hugs and licks! ♥️♥️♥️
Maybe you should try a test for environmental and food sensitivities. Glacier Peak makes one you send in hair and saliva samples for. It is a great test and they do a consult after they have the results. https://glacierpeakholistics.com/products/pet-wellness-life-stress-scan-1?variant=31267012740
So sorry Addie Mae that you have a hot spot. You have the best nurse ever in your mommy. Our prayers are with you and your family. Stay safe all. Hugs..
I’m am so sorry about little Addie, I do hope she is feeling better soon. my love goes out to her.
Sending Positive energy to Addie Mae for speedy recover ????
Poor little Addie Mae , I know you are staying close to her and making her feel better ! You are so lucky to have Mom take such good care of you sweet babies . Hope she feels better soon !! Hugs
Yes! And it is driving me crazy. My baby has started licking her feet non-stop. I tried to get her into the vet today but because of COVID in AZ, they are only taking emergency patients. She suggested a quarter of a baby Benadryl but to watch her closely. I too have not changed her diet, changed floor cleaning products or has anything been sprayed outside. I think it has to be pollen from something in the air. I try to stop her every time I see her licking her paws but even during the night I hear her as… Read more »
My Fanny used to scratch all the time and chew her paws. They thought she was allergic to chicken, but even though we stopped feeding anything chicken based, she still scratched. No one knew what was causing her to be so miserable. Finally our Vet said we should try giving her a Cytopoint shot. Within 3 days she had stopped scratching. We determined that for her the shot lastS about 4 1/2 months then she needs another one. She’s a much happier girl now.
She’s a Lhasa Apso.
Poor Addie Mae! My Yorkie Greta has that every spring/summer. It is supposedly allergies! She will scratch herself raw. Organic hot spot creams and sprays don’t work. A soothing bath only gives short relief. Our vet gives her an allergy shot and within hours she gets relief.
Addie Mae, I hope you heal and feel better soon. Our Mr. Flint had some bugs on him a few years ago and they made him itch. We think he got the bugs from our Hollyhocks. We washed him well that day, and he has not itched since. And so from then on, we keep a close eye on him, so he does not wonder to close to the Hollyhocks. I hope you recover soon sweet Addie Mae. God bless you and take care.
HAS ADDIE SEEN HER VET.
WHENEVER MY MISTRESS SUSPECTS I MIGHT BE COMING DOWN WITH SOMETHING, I AM QUICKLY TAKEN TO MY VET. BY THE TIME ONE CAN SEES I HAVE A PROBLEM, IT COULD BE TOO LATE TO HELP ME. BAD THINGS WORK VERY SLOWLY ON US TURTLES AND OFTEN HIDES INSIDE US. THAT IS WHY MY MISTRESS CHECKS ME OVER EVERY DAY.
Many prayers for Addie Mae ?
I am so glad Addie Mae is doing better and do hope you can find the cause. We all know it is hard to stop those itchies!!
Poor baby girl! Addie, I hope you feel better soon!
