Ok so i'm kinda freaking out here I found this on Gaby's bottom lip a few days ago...it looks like a zit, but what do you guys think?
I have some Panolog ointment (Nystatin, Neomycin Sulfate, Thiostrepton, Triamcinolone, Acetonide), should I rub some of this into it?...Sharon?

I know that some boxers have allergies to plastic food bowls and they can break out on the chin and mouth.

Duke gets bumps like that from time to time and my vet has told me to wash his skin around his mouth with antibacterial soap on a washcloth and keep it clean and dry.  And he has also told me to try and get the ingrown hair out.  I always drain the puss and wash his face and it goes away.  MY vet has also said that if they get worse there is an oinment he can give me.  I dont know if that helps any, I cant tell from a picture but from my experience dukes have been ingrown hairs, but i did go to the vet bc I wasnt sure.

Maple got something like that last week we got worried and took her to the vet and it was just an ingrown hair, it may be the same for your puppy, the vet said to try and give it a squeeze it may give but if it doesn't or of it seems to make her uncomfortable or cause her pain then bring her in.

Looks like a pimple to me :)   maybe an ingrown hair.  I would say to try and sqeeze it gently and if nothing comes out to leave it.  Wash it with antibac soap (human soap is fine for washing around the mouth and chin) and then use the panalog you have.  If it is a pimple/hair folly it will look better/almost be gone in about 3 days.....
