Skin Sores and Hot Spots in dogs - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Hot Spots and Skin Sores are really a manifestation of a buildup of toxins under the skin seeking release through a local infective process. This is one avenue that the immune system uses to rid the body of toxins from the blood and most canine skin problems should be seen as an indication of problems in the blood rather than a problem of the skin itself...

Blood toxins resulting from chemicals in the diet, infection, over-sensitivity in the nervous system or some other sort of metabolic stress, will set up conditions where such impurities are deposited just under the skin which then becomes locally unhealthy, sensitive and irritated.
