Remedy for Dog's Skin Damage from Frostbite

I have a partial Blue, Boston Terrier, Pit mix who suffers from frostbitten paws and skin from being abandoned last winter. His hair on his back is sparse and his poor feet get really red and sore and sometimes bleed. What could I use to topically treat them? I have chlorhexidine shampoo, but I'm looking for more relief for him.

Good old fashion petroleum jelly (Vaseline). Store brand is fine. Baby socks or booties while he is in the house will keep it from rubbing off on floor or furniture. It works for humans so it should work for dogs. It probably tastes terrible so I doubt he will lick it off. If his paws are bleeding, you might want to try triple antibiotic gel.

You need to take your dog to the vet immediately. Frostbite is a serious condition and something only a professional can treat. There are no home remedies. If untreated your dog can lose his paws. Your dog is in pain if his paws are red and bleeding.
