Deep Pyoderma

Hello to all my followers and friends. This is Princess Fiona, bows are not necessary.

I have been struggling with a new problem that is driving my Mom and Dad crazy. I have deep pyoderma on my leg. This is a chronic problem, which means it will probably never completely go away. We may get it under control for awhile, but chances are it will keep coming back.
It started off as just a large pimple looking thing. Mom would pop it with just a gentle squeeze and then treat it with peroxide and triple antibiotic ointment. Unfortunately it just kept getting worse because I kept licking at it when they were not looking. So they took me to see the veterinarian. I do not really like him very much because he wants me to be on a slippery table that is very cold. It is not even padded! I do get to meet other animals sometimes though, so it is not all bad.
Anyway, he prescribed some antibiotic pills and this special spray that stings and stinks pretty bad! After a week and a half, this is what it looks like.....

It really is looking a lot better...honest!
This is me trying to avoid getting my picture taken. I did not want to look at the camera today! I vant to be alone.
