Aardora helps speed healing in three ways. First, Aardora's unique moisturizers soothe itch, irritation, redness and swelling to deter the over-scratching of tender papules. Second, Aardora serves as an antimicrobial dressing in order to protect your dog's bumps and lesions from harmful germs (bacteria and fungus). Lastly, Aardora’s Active Earth Elements™ draw toxins and allergens away from your dog's skin while providing essential mineral nutrients. Guaranteed results with no reported side effects.
What is a Papule?
A papule is a slightly elevated (inflamed) skin lesion. If a papule increases in size, it is referred to as a plaque.
Additional Similar Conditions:
Since many canine skin spots, or areas of discomfort, can look similar, it is often very difficult to precisely identify your dog’s skin irregularity. The following are common classifications of dry skin and rash in dogs, as well as tell-tale symptoms to help you recognize the condition. If your dog's coat appears to have dandruff-like flakes on it, this is most likely "Scale," a condition resulting from the body's underproduction of keratin. If your dog's skin looks very greasy (with or without the presence of scales), your dog has most likely developed seborrhea (a type of dermatitis). Seborrhea sicca (dry skin) and seborrhea oleosa (greasy skin) can be eliminated with consistent hygiene and the use of an intensive moisturizer.
Additional common skin irregularities include Wheals (a raised area that is red or pale pink), Dog Skin Macules (small flat circular red patches), Nodules (large elevated bumps) and Pustules (small raised pus-filled bumps.) If your dog has a more extensive rash (either a full-body rash or a rash that is interspersed with areas of normal skin), this could indicate a more serious problem and should be addressed by a veterinarian.
How to Treat a Papule:
Regardless of your dog’s exact skin condition, one of the most important treatment goals is to deter scratching by use of a cone or muzzle. Excessive scratching or biting will leave the skin raw, moist and highly prone to infection.
Also, use a fast-acting and soothing topical cream to manage the itch, discomfort and inflammation. A topical (surface) skin protectant, such as Aardora, will also lower your dog’s risk of infection, particularly if their skin is over-irritated. And, of course, treating your dog with an extra dose of TLC (tender loving care) will help him or her to heal more comfortably. Surround your dog with its favorite toys, pillows, etc.
