Hot spots are a skin infection caused when too much bacteria grows on one spot. To treat it, you can use antibiotics, or just wash the infection. If these things don't work, call the vet. Your dog may try to irritate it, so be careful!

Hot spots are irritated places on a dog's skin. They are usually places your dog will lick somewhat obsessively. You can go to the vet and get skin ointments that will taste bad and prevent your dog from licking, or look online for home remedies that will give the same effect.
