That spot om my back leg hasn't gotten any worse (or better), I'm cleaning it regularly, but that's not good enough for Burt. He's started applying a tea tree ointment to my spot (thanks to 'socks with sandals'). I don't know if you've ever smelled tea tree, but its like a combination of turpentine and death. The crippling effect of the tea tree oil is not the worst that could happen, Burt has that look in his eye and I have a feeling a trip to the vet might be in my future, that could lead to the dreaded Elizabethan collar. If any readers have input on my condition, please feel free to comment.
Spot description: One inch by half an inch bald-ish oval, no redness, no swelling, and its not hot to the touch. It is smooth but can get a little scabby, possibly from over cleaning.
If someone has the correct answer and cures me before the vet trip, I will send you a L'il Mortimer coffee mug, bad advise will receive L'il Mortimer's Corset of Stinging Nettles®, filled with only the finest Urtica Dioica that Oregon has to offer*.
