I posted about this on another (weim specific) forum and couple people said that theyre dogs get it during winter, but theyre not sure why. I thought it was due to his coat rubbing(it had a chest extension), but it simply doesent reach that far. Could it be due to cold?

Could possibly be the start of a staph infection. The 4th pup I raised got this. It started in his armpits but spread down to his thigh. Pretty easy to treat, just antibiotics and some antibacterial shampoo to treat the area. That's the only thing I can think of, unless it is just from the weather.

it turned out to be some sort of windburn since weims dont have any belly hair, the skin gets chapped in the winter. Anyways, I put some bag balm and it dissapeared after 2 days!dancing

Glad you got it under control. Stinky has those rashes pretty much 24/7 because of his Demodex confused
