Use Antibacterial Body Wash
When a pet is diagnosed with bacterial skin infection, pet parents should consider cleaning the area with special antibacterial body wash. These body wash help flush the bacteria out of the hair follicle and to directly kill bacteria involved with the skin problem as well. First apply the body wash on the infected area and leave for about 5 to 10 minutes and clean it.
Sterilize the Wound
After cleaning the wound thoroughly with body wash, apply soothing tea tree oil and leave it. You can apply it on infected area 2 - 3 times a day.
