My dog has a sore that won't heal

my dog has a sore on his stomach between two flaps of skin. It feels like there is a small cyst. I took him to the vet two weeks ago, and he thought it might be a small pimple. I am concerned it might be more than a pimple. What could it be and how can I get it to heal?

Take him back and or see another vet for second opinion.
If it is really small maybe it's nothing. But, if it grows and is lumpy it could be something.
I would watch it and see another vet.

sometimes dogs develop sores or irritated skin if they are allergic to an ingredient in their food (especially wheat, grain, and corn). Try switching to a food that does not contain those ingredients or switch to a raw food diet...see if it helps! :)
