    Corona ointment, stuff really heals sores better than neosporin. Dog may try to lick it off, work it in. Might try bathing him if its some sort of contact allergy...but i would expect some sort of pattern behind it (ex. Fido licks his legs raw each night after we train down at X slough)

    We shave the hair around them keep them dry and used a product called Genta ved, its a topical spray. Towel dry really well after swimming.

    Mix baby oil and listerine and put it on the hot spot. Works wonders.
