Default Dog Hotspots

My beagle appears to have a hotspot on her midsection. The spot was very red and you could tell it was irritated. She had one of these a few months ago as well. The Vet gave us a homebrew(vet made it) solution to put on the hotspot. It would help to kill the infection and help the healing process. We had some leftover from last time so we have been using that, and it has gotten better. Noticeably less red and irritated.

I'm debating taking her to the vet for this. It seems to be getting better but occasionally she will lick the spot especially right after I put the medicine on the spot.

Are there any other remedies that can be done for hotspots?

as scooby stated the steroid shot seems to calm my golden retrievers hot spots. Some of it can be allergies, food etc. We switched both to grain free food made in the U.S. or Canada only. It is better food to begin with and both seem to itch a lot less. We had one on Authority grain free and the other on Blue Buffalo grain free. Switched both to Fromm which they both love and is around the same price as Blue. Smaller poops, less gas, less itching and better coats.

Also you could try giving her a few benadryl a day to help with the allergies etc, both our goldens get them everyday and have no issues. the vet said they could take a decent amount of benadryl a day, but we limit it to only a couple a day.

Benadryl has never done anything for my dog's hotspots. Always have to go the route of the steroid shot.
