I think that the scabs there are what's making her itch. I bathed her last night, gave her a nice oatmeal soak, and then sat and removed a ton of the scabs to see if that would help. On the positive side, though it was really really gross having to deal with all the scabs, none of them had open wounds underneath, all had fresh, new skin!
Clemmy already has an adoptive home with piggie mom and her beautiful boy Ben (whom she already adopted for ACRS), so I want her well ASAP so she can go and be loved on and treated like the princess she is.
Jenn- were you able to find Bag Balm?
8-Hydroxyquinoline Sulfate 0.3%; Base: Petrolatum; Lanolin
A 10 oz tin costs about $8.00 and is available at Walgreens and Walmart and CVS. Even cheaper from Amazon ($5.62)
If you like, I'll be glad to order and ship to you- just email me a shipping address.

I don't give him baths because it seems aggravate the itching. My vet recommended not to for that reason.
Can you get Panalog?
If it were me, I'd not worry too much about the bag balm, but stick with what's working. (Funny socks and all)
I've used bag balm a lot around horses and on my own wounds -- I've found it to be greasy, sticky, and strangely drying all at the same time.

1% hydrocortisone, cheaper, easier to get. I specifically asked our vet one time about any steroid effect with Panolog and was told it's a good question, but not a concern.
She is going to be a spunky, fun lady.
