Identifying Lump on Dog?

My dog lady has a lump with a scab like thing on top of it. She ran away awhile back and got into some foxtails, and I'm thinking maybe that is where it is? But I just wanted to see others opinions before I make vet app!

This could be anything from ringworm to a staph infection to fungus or allergy. Best to take doggo to the doctor ASAP! Hopefully something simple with an inexpensive cure. Please post back what they say!

This is for a Vet to answer, speculation of what this could be, could be so many different things .Get Lady looked at as soon as possible, so there are not any further damaged by waiting. Good Luck

When any type of bump appears on your pet it's usually advisable to watch it for a few days and if it looks infected or there is no improvement then you should have your vet look at it just to be sure of what is causing the bump and best way to remove it.

If you have to wait a few days for an appointment you can always mix Epsom Salt in warm water (hot to dissolve but not too hot on pet - test heat on your wrist) and dip a clean cloth in mix and lay over the sore/bump. Try not to reuse the cloth but use several clean cloths and keep the bump covered for several minutes.
Use strong mixture of salts as this is a drawing mixture and will help with any pain or itching.
Water should be as warm as possible but not too hot as to burn the pet. They do not usually mind this as you are providing the attention they love.

A lot of people are now using telecommunication for none emergency vet visits and your vet may be doing this also.
If your vet has not signed on for this there are other online vets that do. The cost is usually $35 - $50 and they can see your pet and describe meds if necessary and also tell you if your pet needs to see their vet.
You can read about this service as it is probably going to be around from now on.

This is certainly interesting for anyone using Chewy services:

I think you need to make an appointment with your vet because it looks like your dog has ringworm. Here are some of the symptoms of ringworm to help you.

This can be very contagious and you need to get it looked at right away. Before trying to treat this yourself with over the counter products I would make an appointment with your vet to make sure this is actually ringworm.
