Pug Pimple Question

Hello,

Thanks for reading. My pug saw the vet three weeks ago for a tiny white bump on his cheek. Vet could not determine what the cause was. Wanted to take a wait and see approach. We have an appointment again this week but would like your feedback. From googling it looks like it could be a pimple. Have you ever dealt with this? It was just a white tiny bump but quickly become a gross fatty bump. It started peeling too. It was barely visible one day bit it looks painful now. He's always licking his face so I am nervous about a lotion or cream. If you're familiar with this and know of a cure please let me know. I want to go to the vet with as much info as possible. Thanks in advance. Trying to insert photo here:

My Rico had one like a year and a half ago. It did resolve by itself. It got real ugly and i posted for help. But then One day later I think he may have popped it rubbing against something.

My late Rocco had a few and they really went Down on their own. Maybe a warm compress like when we have sty may bring it to a head. I would not put any medicine other than witch hazel or alcohol on it. Just to keep it clean. Update when you can.

Hi Joe,

One of my Pugs has had a Pugzit from time to time..they go away. If people can get them, so can animals! Any pore that can contain a hair can clog. As Denise said, take a warm washcloth to his face and mildly rub...it will open and eventually go away; no worries.

Thanks Ellen,
I've been using a warm wash cloth - he hates it at first but eventually seems to accept it. Then demands a treat when we are done. Thanks again!

Best,

Joe
