    What is this?

    Is it like rain rot or something? I have no idea what it is. Before she only had one spot (I think the higher one) . . . I'm not sure when she got the other one. Will MTG take it away?

    I don't think its anything, she probably been rubbing alot, in the spring they get real itchy because there shedding and sometimes the scratch too hard, lol, normally rain rot is something they get on there back/ butt. If I were you I would just leave it be, your like me, I freak over every little thing. Maybe it is something, but I dought it.

    Looks like she scraped her head on something. And yes Mtg on there will get the hair to grow back in quickly

    A&D Ointment works well for growing in small spots too.

    Ok thanks. Ya I think she hit her head on something too. It looks like the top one now (like healed kinda). Is it ok to put MTG (or A&D Ointment) above her eye right there? Is it too close to her eye?

    Make sure you don't get it in the eye and it'll be fine. :)

    Do be careful what you use around the mouth and eyes. Maybe some Neosporin or any topical that is thick and won't run into the eyes.
    Shiloh had a spot of a fungus looking thing next to her mouth I just used Listerine on Figured if it got in her mouth she would just be fresh and minty.

    Well I put swat on it the other day now it's like all healed. I'm just asking about the MTG cause it'd be nice if the hair would grow back faster. Ok thanks.

    Looks like he's just been rubbing. Splash rubbed like all the hair from under his eyes. But it growing back now.
