    Thumbs up Peeling red circles on inner back leg

    Babetty has gross peeling red circles on one of her inner back legs. Time for a vet visit! Has anyone else experienced this in their bullies?

    Yep time for a vet visit... It could be something as simple as allergies but it could also be staph or ringworm.... Best to find out for sure.

    Hard to tell in the lighting, they appear to be dry, so it could be as simple as scrapes or dermatitis. I see some yellowing at the thigh skin so that could be the crusting of a dermatitis or beginning of a staph infection.
    keep us posted as to what your vet say's.
    May I ask what you are feeding her?

    Wow I had not seen these anywhere else, my eb used to get these on his tummy, back legs. I thought it was a reaction to something in the grass as they come & go. I would clean them with anti bac soap. He hasn't had them this year. If you go to the vet I am curious as to what his comments are.

    We have been told that it's 90% likely to be a food allergy and are in the process of switching her from Beneful (which wasn't her usual food - when we moved we couldn't find her regular grain free food) to California Natural.

    I had thought initially it was a reaction to something at the beach, but she's been today and is as happy as can be. Still has redness but no more patches, we've been helping to ease her wiggles with some Hydrocortisone lotion (We decided to try a topical route + food switch before opting for another shot and more pills. This seems to be helping so we're hoping we can forego another round of heavy medicine.)
