It could be anything but I would probably get the vet to check it out if its not healing well.

That looks nasty, and I agree with the others - definitely something for the vet to look at because it could be anything.

Good luck, and I hope that it can be easily and quickly sorted out.

Rufus had a small lump appear in his groin which I was keeping an eye on, there was no sign of injury, it turned into a nasty infection quite quickly as he had a foreign body in him, never did find out what it was but he needed ab's, I wouldn't leave it too long.

If you're worried enough to ask (which you obviously are) then it's time for a vet visit.

It's never worth hanging on too long as not only does it increase pain, but also costs.

Let us know what the vet says x

I agree - a vet visit would be the safest.

In the meantime, I wouldn't put anything on it - IMHO it's better off drying out.....

Keep us posted and good luck x
