Default Laska's elbows are red, help please.

So, hubby and I just woke up to a very itchy Laska, we were looking everywhere and found both his elbows are red, bloody like, maybe from scratching so much, maybe from a bit?

I was wondering if any of you know what would it be? He is still itchy.







Should I be worried? Right now I can't take it to the vet but I could by 5pm.

I wanted to say that Laska and Karma both sleep with me in bed. Karma is normal.
Also, my vet opens again at 4pm so no matter what we are going there, but he is itchy and would like to know how to make him feel better for now

If he's itchy try children's anti histamine I use liquid

hi Mayra,
is it both elbows or just one elbow? if its both elbows then I don't think it would be a bug bite....

is he licking and biting at them?
you could put a little shirt with sleeves on him so he doesn't irritate his skin too bad ....

strangely is both elbows, one looks a little worse than the other, we are on our way to the vet now.
He is not licking or biting just scratching.
I'll let you know what the vet says. Thanks for answering!

Thanks E! <3

Our vet was on holidays so we went to another one, he was not really helpful and said it could be an allergic reaction, but he didn't said to what.
He sent him a cream but by then he was a lot better, he is still scratching but really rarely.

My vet comes from holiday next Monday so we will visit him then and see what he says. I am still a little worried because even if he is not scratching frequently, he is still doing it and I am afraid he could hurt himself by scratching so hard.
