Default Re: Putting cream on ham's nose?

It does sound tricky. What cream is it? Has he been bar chewing? That can often lead to sores or scabs on the nose (and also round the mouth). If it's not infected it should heal up on its own. Or you could put a dab of aloe vera gel on it daily - that is safe to lick off. If it doesn't heal up on its own or looks infected I would ask the vet about an antibiotic injection (or oral) instead of the cream and explain the cream isn't working. But I would try aloe vera gel and try and rule out the cause of the sore on the nose.
