Rash on Genitals (Picture)

Postby RowdyGSP » Mon Jun 10, 2013 3:30 pm

Yesterday, I noticed a circular rash develop on the skin around Rowdy's penis. Contact dermatitis? Some other type of allergy? Anybody have any experience with this in their dogs?

I have to say, I have more concerns about Rowdy's owner.

What makes you say that? I am asking for serious thoughts on what this condition could be.

If it was a serious question....OK. I am guessing you did the inspection because the dog was licking himself. What you see is probably from the licking. No more, no less. Don't worry about it.

Okay thanks. I honestly did not know what it could be, but thank you for your help.

Circular red rash could be ringworm.

Exactly.

That kind of lesion DOES NOT come from licking himself.

Must be ringworm then. Better take Rowdy to the vet before the whole family has it.

That seems the most likely scenario. I am starting treatment ASAP.
