My dog has an infected hair follicle. What the treatment?


Answer by  keiki (1376)

Generally infected hair follicles are treated with oral medication prescribed by a vet. In addition to that, make sure that the area around the hair follicle remains clean doesn't get any more infected.

I am not entirely sure that dogs can get infected hair follicles. If they do, then you would treat it the same as with a human and remove the hair.
