Sore near eye where tear staining occurs????

I was giving Cookie a bath yesterday and noticed a sore on the bridge of his nose where the tear stains are. After I cleaned away all the dried goop from his eyes there is a raw sore, that sort of looks like an ulcer. I brought him to the groomer to have the hair shaved away and now I am wondering if I should treat it with antibiotic cream? Has this happened to someone else?

Hmmmm....it's possible something happened when she was groomed. If it looks infected you could try a little antibiotic cream but if it doesn't help you may want to take her to the vet
