Any ideas what this could be?

    So Maisie's had what can only be described as a pimple on her nose for a couple of days

    It started off pretty tiny - and I thought she's maybe pulled a whisker out somehow?

    It's got quite a bit bigger (not huge) - it doesn't seem to be bothering her at all


    Any ideas what it is / if I need to worry about it / do anything with it?

    It looks like the skin has come off, maybe that's the picture.

    Maybe try bathing it with saltwater and putting abit of manuka honey on it?

    Could it be a sebaceous cyst? One of my dogs has one on his eyebrow that i'm waiting to disappear. He had another but that went all by itself.

    Yup there's no hair on it - it's quite noticeable now, whereas a few days ago I could only see if if I was really close to her.

    I'll give that a try (i even have Manuka honey but always forget it's great for 1st aid:eek:)

    I've just had to do some searching as I had no idea what these were :eek:

    It could be ..... mmmmm

    Ben had a huge lump right on the middle of his head when he got older - I think that's what that was (vet said not to worry about it and to leave it alone so I did - can remember if they ever said what they thought it was)
