    Unhappy Cure for hotspots

    My 6 year old golden is at it again, coming up with a hotspot the week before our northen duck season opens.
    besides triming back the hair and sprying a topical spray, what other remidies have worked.
    I remember a similar thread a few months ago but can't find it.

    Johnsons & Johnsons anti-bacterial wash 2-3 times a day and Gold Bond powder after each cleaning.

    clean it with rubbing alcohol to get all the "crusties" off and then use EMT gel for a couple of day's followed by gold bond, or just stick with the EMT gel, it's get stuff. If you don't have EMT gel go with gold bond, it has worked great for me, I just like the anti-baterial componets of the EMT gel.

    I keep a product called Coolspot2000. I can not tell you the speed with which this stuff heals.

    According to my vet, most hot spots seem to be caused by allergies. Most are food allergies.

    They are also caused by stress.
