My male Bulldog has what looks like chapping on his testicles. There were a bunch of like hard rough spots on them. I noticed it today and thought it was dried up poo, so I gave him a bath and let that area soak for awhile and after the bath they ended up being like raw sores. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I put some bag balm on the spots. Should I have him checked? He is not around any female dogs at all and is ALWAYS kept on a leash with me if outdoors so I know he couldn't have contracted an STD or anything. Do you think it may be just chapping? It's the start of our winter season and just in the last week the temps have dropped tremendously. Also, he has recently decided (over the last two months) that he likes to sleep in the laundry room on the concrete floor (we do not block him in there, it's completely his choice, he has full run of the house). This and the cold are the only two reasons I can think of for maybe chapping, it just doesn;t seem likely. Is there something that he may be allergic to? We haven't changed anything at all recently-- Shampoo, laundry detergent, food, etc. Thank you in advance to anyone who may be able to give any advice.
