Hot spot and ear infections (yeast)

I am going crazy trying to figure out what to do about my 3 year old Boston Terrier male's hot spot. He has had recurrent ear infections, so we put him on Royal Canin Hydrolyzed protein diet kibble (soy based protein). His stomach issues cleared up and he is basically healthy. But after the ear infections (3 of them since November) when he was treated with a variety of meds from the vet and the infections cleared up, he started to lose hair on the backs of his ears. It isn't getting worse, and some has grown back a little, but it still isn't great. Concurrently, he has had a red hot spot off and on since January, which I've been treating with Muracin ointment. The spot gets better, and then three or four days later, it can re-appear, and spread and looks red to light pink in color. I took him to a Dermatologist who scraped and did a culture for ringworm, but it's still coming and going, and he does not have ringworm. Now I'm thinking he has some sort of environmental allergy, or maybe an allergy to the soy in the hyperallergenic food! I am so confused. By the way, this red spot is NOT itchy, nor does it seem to be at all painful. Is that typical of a hot spot?

Hot Spots on my dog

Returning fm vacation where my dog, Sara, spent most of her time n the water (& wet), she's developing hot spots one after another. Cut back hair, used mild beta dine sol., tea tree oil, and Fold Bond compress. Dries it up in a day but then another appears elsewhere, mostly on her haunches and legs. Her vet is on vacation until Wed. What else can I do? Also giving probiotics for internal.

Hot spots on my golden retreiver

Our golden is 6 years old, for the first 2-3 years he was fine when going to the groomer. Now for the past 2-3 years everytime he goes he gets hot spots. I thought it was the groomer, but NO, we have brought him to probably 6 different ones. We even gave him bathes at home and he still gets them. Everybody (groomer and us) use hypoallergentic shampoo etc. We have even given him Benadryl and /or Predisone for a week before and a week after and he still gets them. And he is dried as much as possible one groomer even dried him then kept him in a big kennel for 4 hours with dryers on and he still got 4 pretty big ho spots. We have a below ground swimming pool and have noticed the few times he has went in there he has NOT gotten them. Its ONLY when he gets bathed. Please HELP we have tried everything we think and nobody has an answer.

Dog has a hot spot around his tail

My french bulldog is 5 months old. He was doing perfect until yesterday that I notice a hot spot around his tail, his tail was cut off... I think he's in a lot of pain, his personality has changeed too because of this. I started cleaning his butt area, so that the excrement won't get to the hot spot, but is all over and smells very bad... What can I do? -Kenji-

Cat Has Hot Spots, Please Help!

I looked at your FAQ's about "hot spots" on www.vetionx.com. My cat has hot spot areas that get a black crustiness on them. He has been dealing with this for about 10 years now. A Dermatologist vet did surgery about 6 years ago to laser off the areas though 50% of the areas came back. I can not afford any more surgeries. Though reading your FAQ's, I am doing everything you suggest to do; Supplements (Dinovite), probotics, fish oils, your Derma-IonX, a natural shampoo, grain free, soy & wheat free diet.  I have been doing all of this for over 3 months now and nothing is working! Can you suggest anything else? Thanks Ed
