Skin injuries in a pet dog
What could be the cause?
Dogs can have a number of skin changes and many other skin conditions. Owners can find the lesions frightening and it can be extremely uncomfortable for the dog itself. If your dog has an injury and you do not know what is causing it, you must take the pet with you for treatment.
If you see your dog developing skin lesions, it's probably your first concern to find out what is causing it. It can be as simple as allergic reactions or it can be very critical like skin cancer. Finding out what is causing the disease is key to the medication process. Without the right diagnosis, this could prolong healing.
The ringworm is one of the main explanations for skin damage in companion dogs. Despite this name, the condition is not caused by a parasitic worm, but triggered by a fungal infection. Unlike in humans, the condition in dogs would not cause an annular lesion. Instead, it shows round lesions that can cause hair loss. The lesions are often red and can protrude from the skin. Ringworm also causes hair loss and can cause bald spots in dogs. Lesions can be found in the abdominal area. They can also be found on the jaw or legs.
In a forum where the Weimaraner jump was discussed, some members raised concerns about skin damage to their companion dogs. Known for their beautiful coats, the Weimaraner can be intimidating when owners see their dogs lose their hair.
Allergies are another major cause of injury to companion dogs. The papules are small and pulled up and can arise from contact with foreign bodies. They can also be the result of eating disorders that the dog is allergic to.
Bacterial infections are also caused by skin changes. Localized infections can occur if the skin is injured or punctured. These lesions are often large, which is characteristic of these infections. Bacterial infections can catch fire and lead to pus leakage. They are red, hot to the touch, and can be terribly painful. Dogs can also get a fever.
Ringworm care was also discussed in the Weimaraner Hop Forums. However, ringworms are not the only cause of damage. As already mentioned, this can also be due to bacterial infections. If your dog has skin lesions, please take the animal to the vet as soon as possible so that it can be treated properly.
Morgellon disease - a psychologically depressing condition
Morgellon's disease is characterized by wounds on the surface of the skin, often in the hair, and there are few treatments available. The skin is also characterized by vessel-like structures that "run" under the surface and are easily recognizable to the casual observer of the patient.
The disease itself, together with symptomatic skin changes, often leads to psychological damage to the patient. The patient is aware that not only is his condition bad, but others fear that he is contagious, and therefore avoid the Morgellon patient. This rejection leads to behavioral changes such as isolation, lack of socialization, depression and loss of will to live. Some patients are so frustrated that they are considering suicide.
A lack of knowledge about the cause of the disease is extremely frustrating for doctors, even more so for the patient. If no one can explain why the disease exists and what is the cause, the patient is frustrated. Not knowing the cause also means not knowing any treatment to stop or reverse the symptoms of Morgellon.
Tea tree oil, with its antiseptic properties, has been shown to slow the spread of the disease when applied locally to the skin. Since Tea Tree is a very popular antiseptic that works very well for bacterial infections, there is reason to believe that the disease itself is caused by bacteria.
If the process of ending the disease is to prevent cross-contamination of the skin by killing the bacteria, there is also hope that one can use ultraviolet light in the c-range and kill the bacteria before they can reproduce. and spread the infection to other parts of the skin. Stopping the bacteria, stopping replication leads to control of the disease when it is associated with the bacteria.
If the rashes are stopped frequently, the patient will be psychologically stimulated, knowing that the disease will not get worse. Once the disfigurement of the skin is contained, the patient can use hats, scarves, and blankets to cover the skin or hair and return to normal social life.
Finding the cause, overcoming the cause is one thing, but knowing and respecting the mental state of the patient suffering from Morgellon disease is another thing.
The complementary use of a proven topical antibiotic such as tea tree oil in combination with a short daily treatment with ultraviolet light from 60 to 120 seconds can now help those who suffer from this often untreated disease. diagnosed.
