I am treating sexy with childrens nerofen for bumblefoot and I'm putting sudocream on his foot (i cant afford anything off gorgeous guineas right now)
do you think the sudocream is helping his foot at all?
Thank you:)

sudocream will not do anything for bumblefoot, you need Daktarin spray.

i would spray it on 3 times a day, but bumble foot is really hard to treat.

Daktarin Cream, Daktarin Gold ointment and Daktarin Oral Gel are all ok, personally I would go with the cream or ointment for feet though.

An anti-fungal preparation is not guaranteed to work, but bumblefoot can be an issue with systemic illness like fungal infection...maybe why Claire has suggested it?

Any other problems aside from bumblefoot, which foot is affected?

His back foot, he has a lump on that leg which i was told to leave unless it bothered him. I clean them every 3 days so I dont know why he has it...? Or is it nothing to do with cleanliness?
thankfully we already have Daktarin as one of our piggies arrived with a fungal problem.
Thank you so much for your advice:)
