A hot spot, also known as moist dermatitis, is a skin infection in which the skin is inflamed and infected. Hot spots occur when moisture is trapped near the skin and bacteria overgrow, causing irritation and infection.
Hot spots start off as a small red lesion on the skin but quickly grow larger the longer they remain untreated. If a hot spot is smaller than the size of a quarter, you may be able to get away with shaving the area using clippers and clean the area with a mild detergent like dawn dish soap (do not use hydrogen peroxide). At that time, a veterinarian will cleanse the area and medications may need to be started to counter the inflammation, pain, itching and infection. Brushing out the undercoat or any mats will decrease the likelihood of moisture remaining near the skin.


A Licensed Veterinary Technician of Cascade Hospital for Animals & Breton Village Animal Clinic answer some common questions about hot spots, and what you can do to prevent your dog from getting them.
The affected skin appears as a moist, oozing, reddened area that is painful and itchy to the dog.A  Continued licking and chewing at the area by the dog worsens the infection dramatically. Hotspots occasionally occur outside the summer season when a scratch or repetitive licking irritates the skin and allows bacteria to overgrow. Your dog may need to wear an e-collar or shirt to cover the area loosely and prevent your dog from further irritating the skin from itching. Rinse your dog after trips to swim in the lake to get rid of any bacteria they may have picked up with the lake water. Common areas for hot spots to occur are on the neck near the collar, under the ear flaps for floppy eared breeds, and under the chin.


Some dogs are more prone to getting hot spots based on breed, coat type, coat texture, age or history of allergies. Being aware of hot spots will give you the ability to catch them early on before they get out of control.
