I was chilling with my lil boy (5 years old) when I suddenly noticed a bump on his skin. I pushed the hair aside and found a skin problem underneath his hair. It was a brownish patch, bumpy and bold, with hair sticking out of it and the area surrounding it was dry white skin. Here are some pictures: (I searched his whole body and didn’t find any other patch)
I’m very worried cause I can’t take him to the vet atm. Vets are very expensive here and I’m a student who has to wait 7 days for the beginning of a new month (in our calendar) to get my hand on enough cash to take this little guy to the vet. So... any insight is very appreciated.
I would clean the area, perhaps put some cold pressed coconut oil on the central section and see if the brownish part softens. If it is a scab, having it heal naturally and fall off on its own is best. If there is no sign of infection and no underlying lump, I would probably just monitor it. Seeing a vet might put you at ease though.
Let me know if I can add your pics permanently to your topic for future readers.
Yes you can add the pictures :)
