What can we do about this..?

Mirtillo is bothered by an itch..

What can we do about it?

Definitely see a vet. I would think they will give you antibiotics, but they may have something else in store as well. That is a little disturbing for me to just play the wait and see for a couple days though.

I can't tell if that's a blister or a small scratch that has gotten irritated.

If it's just a scratch, I think I'd just put some ointment on it a few times a day
and try to keep him out of the serious dirt for a few days.

It looks like a blister, or cold sore.
I would get it checked..
Its got to hurt.

Yeah, thought about it.. I think it's from a plant. I believe it is cald hogweed in English. We were at training this morning (yes, again the training) and they grow there.

Could well be that it was the hogweed as I have heard of it irritaing humans skin and causing blisters.
