My Nubian is a first year freshener. This skin condition appeared under her chin a few months ago as a small bumpy rash. It has recently become more aggressive and seems to be spreading more rapidly. It has also started to crack open. She tests negative for parasites. Has anyone seen this before?

Could be a staph infection. How have you treated it so far? I would clean it twice a day with chlorhexidine and put NuStock on it.

I would expect soremouth to clear up before a month and not get worse.

Did you have a skin scraping done to verify no mites?

We did a scraping which showed no mite activity. We are thinking if doing a biopsy, which involves sedation.
