My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
I have encountered this quite a few times in the UK and one of the best things you can do on an over the counter basis is to apply " human " 0.5% hydrocortisone cream to the affected area three times a day. This is often effective and this sort of ointment is very safe if applied topically
Five or six days of application is usually enough but if after a week things have not improved then it would be best to have your vet take a look as prescription drugs such as antibiotics may be needed.
The honey would not doa nay harm and could be applied but the hydrocortisone cream would be your best bet ...
I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.Regards,Scott
