Generally speaking, yes, Banixx will do a great job with the infection that arises from the Hot Spot, but, depending on the cause, Banixx may only act as a band-aid. Please read on to learn more ...
Some dogs have Hot Spots due to a skin fungal condition. In these cases, Banixx will take care of this infection quickly and the dog makes a speedy recovery.
In other cases, the Hot Spot may be caused by an allergy to flea or tick bites. In those cases, a flea/treatment also needs to be administered along with using Banixx as a topical treatment on the affected area.
Some Hot Spots arise as a result of a skin allergy or skin disease. Again, Banixx will do a wonderful job with the surface infected area, but, the underlying allergy or infection needs to be addressed for an ultimate cure. The course of action here is generally to consult with your veterinarian regarding the cause while using Banixx to clear up the topical infection.
Some dogs are allergic to items in their food (particularly in grain-based foods), in this case, it may be recommended that the food source is replaced with a higher protein food where the source is from fish, bison, venison, duck, chicken, etc ... hence a change of diet affects a systemic change and Banixx can be used for topical healing!
Sunshine arrived at SunCoast Bassett Rescue in Florida with a severe case of Demodex all over her body and into her ears (Demodex is a common infestation of a dog's skin caused by mites). She was treated with Ivermectin liquid to eliminate the mites. Banixx was applied as a soothing, healing agent for the outward skin infection and outbreaks all over her skin and inside her ears. Sunshine made a complete recovery (final picture) and found a forever home.

Sasha presented with a very irritating skin condition and she was biting and scratching the area. Banixx was applied twice daily and her diet changed slightly to include more protein and less grain based foods. Hitherto these changes, Sasha's owners had spent hundreds of dollars searching for a cure. After a couple of weeks of Banixx and a new dog food, costing much less than previous approaches, Sasha was completely cured and back to being a healthy, happy member of the family.
