    hey!
    I recently adopted a sphynx from the animal shelter I work at, he was kept in a metal cage his whole 6 years of life being used for breeding. He came in covered in wounds and several heart problems. He was at work undergoing vet treatment for about 3 months and I’ve had him for about 2 months, however the past few days I’ve noticed that on his hind legs at the back between his folds it’s really red and today it looks like the skin has broken. Just wondering if any has had anything like this? I bath him in malaceb anti fungal shampoo as previously at work he got red dot rash on him and this helped and then I put some coconut oil on the red area. He is also on a special vet prescribed diet due to him having stool issues.

      Try a bit of conditioner after you bath him. It will help hydrate the skin because malaseb while good for killing off different bacteria and yeasts is very harsh and can strip the skin of it's natural oils. Keep an eye on the rash and see if it persists or if it clears within a day or so. We have had really high temps here and since they like to bake in the windows we have been fighting a bit of heat rash in the same area.

        Do you think it’s worth getting a cream to put on it? I live in Australia so at the moment it is winter so it’s only about 20degree Celsius here at the moment so not too hot but I’ll try a moisture conduit ion thanks so much!

        Bless you for opening your heart and Home to him.
        He finally has all the love and care he deserves
        Head smooches sent

        What is his name ?

        Did he by chance sit on anything warm or hot ? Floor vent etc?
        Looks like a possible pattern on both legs ?
        Is it irritatiom from his previous sad cage life ?

        Do you have access to Vetericyn plus spray?

        His name Manu ❤️❤️ And no there’s nothing hot he could have sat on that’s the weird thing, I spoke to the vets from my rescue and they gave me some cream to put on it and it has worked really well! But yes I will definetky be investing in some nice soothing conditioner for him! Thanks so much for all your help!!
