About a month ago I took Isabelle for a walk and came in and noticed there was a little blood spot on her belly like she scratched it on something. Well it must of been an insect bite or something because it turned into a white head. I put some hydrogen proxide and ointment on it but I'm kind of worried about it. I mean she is acting fine and it happened about a month ago but it looks like it might be infected. Does anybody have any opinions on what I should do?
Thanks so much!!!!
Holly :p

Seiah had a lot of whiteheads and red bumps after playing in the grass. His went away in a couple days. So if it's been there for over a month now, I would go check it out with a vet.

If you dare to be holistic :D put tea tree oil DILUTED on it 2x's a day. But to have peace of mind a vet visit would not hurt.

Kemo had gotten such a bump on his eye after a day at the beach my guess was sand got in a pore and got infected the tea tree treatment worked - took a week but it worked and I was messing with his eye, Im crazy huh?

Thankyou so much for the advice. She just got the whitehead a couple of days ago, but before that there was a red spot. I'm going to try the tea tree oil and if that doesn't work I'll be taking her to the vet.
Thanks again :D

Are there spiders in your area?
I dont want to scare you and I might be wrong but maybe it was a Spider bite. I have heard that spiders leave BIG white heads. If it was a spider and it has been there for over a month then you shouldnt worry about it because it was not harmful..
Ask your Vet and lets hope I am wrong! :lol: which I probably am.

Good news! Holly, if it was a dangerous insect bite normally you wouldn't see a whitehead, it would look more like 2 punctures close together and there would be a lot of redness and swelling. More likely, it's exactly what it looks like: a little whitehead pimple =) Sometimes they also get little sebaceous gland infections or very minor cysts that eventually go away as well. Glad to hear this one is subsiding.
