An over the counter triple antibiotic cream is helpful, perhaps a low dose of cortisone cream in addition to this would stop the itching. Continue to monitor this area to make certain infection is not a possibility; also be aware that previous trauma to an area can stimulate excessive sensitivity (itching/rubbing/pawing) and therefore self-induced trauma as a response would need to be controlled. If this does not solve the problem then have a
follow-up visit with our veterinarian.
