Hello Pam

I've recently bought home a mini lop and he is now 12 weeks, I noticed that he's got really thick hard dry skin under his chin and I don't know what it is or what caused it. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it and get his skin back to normal? He is still eating and drinking as he normally does.
I'll attach a picture for you to see.


Hi Tammy,

It could be fungal or it could be a tooth issue that is causing him to drool.  At 3 months old I really doubt that he has molar spurs.

Since it is on his chin and not on his lips I recommend a product called Healx Soother Plus.  It is a cream that you apply to the area and rub it in twice a day.  It is non toxic and all natural.  It is actually pretty amazing stuff.  I have seen it cure everything from ringworm to gaping open wounds that would have normally been a death sentence.  If you apply it regularly that area should be cleared up pretty quickly.

You can find it on Amazon here:

Let me know if it works for you.
