Swine pox usually goes away in a few weeks. there is nothing you can do to get rid of it. I suggest you hit the pig with some ivomec as it is caused by parasites, they spread it. You can use some kind of cream, ie. cortizone, etc to ease the itching or bathe in a med. soap. Good luck. Piggy

Piggy is giving good advice. Pox is spread by lice. Ivomec will get rid of them.

If one pig has it, the others will get it. Ivomec them all. you can use the 1% on all of them, does not hurt to give a bit more than they need. Good luck, Piggy ps, if you use Dectomax, you will not have to re-do in 14 days like with ivomec. It is the same meds, just a different carrier and will kill hatching eggs cause it last 21 days.

so dectomax only needs to give one shot and they will be fine or do i do it every 21 days. the pigs next to him, doesnt have any thing on him. the spots on the infected one its like a brownish-gray with a vred ring around it. the spots are on the sholder. this is swine pox, right?

I have a pig with the same problem and asked about two weeks ago and the hog doc replied back to use ivermectin to kill the lice. The hog was in a pen between two others and they never got it. The hog doc also said it could be greasy pig never heard of that. I did seperate the pig and the sores are just now starting to go away. I have been spreying her down with bleach and water also every day. I bought the pig in Iowa.

Swinepox is a worldwide disease of pigs caused by a virus of the family Poxviridae and the genus Suipoxvirus. It is the most common cause of pox disease in pigs, with vaccinia virus being the next most common cause of outbreaks.[1] It is a mild to severe disease depending on the louse it was contracted from. Symptoms include papules and pustules on the skin of the abdomen. Characteristic lesions on the lower abdomen have dark hemorrhagic centers.[2] Swinepox is transmitted by direct contact and by the pig louise, Hematopinus suis. Often the hooves go crusty due to a the animals water content in its body being used for fighting the infection. This in serious Swine pox cases can cause malformed hoofs and damage the ability for the pig to walk properly. In some extremely rare cases, the genetics of the animal can be changed by this disease but go unnoticed in terms of physical symptoms; this, if contracted by breeding pigs is very threatening for the potential baby piglets to be born. Piglets born from parents that both have the severest strain of the disease will be born frequently with disfigurements such as a tail that is bulbous, and crooked snouts. The inside of the animal is also affected by the genetic strain by making the muscles and fat of the animal pus filled and also weakens the piglets organs overtime resulting in death.

This is a disease caused by the swine pox virus which can survive outside the pig for long periods of time and is resistant to environmental changes. It is a vesicular disease.characterised by small circular red areas 10-20mm in diameter that commence with a vesicle containing straw-coloured fluid in the centre.

All pigs

The small round red areas * 10-20mm in diameter, starting with the cavity containing a yellowish liquid in the center.

* After two to three days, the blisters burst and crust is formed, which gradually turns black.

* The lesions may be visible anywhere in the body but are common along the flanks, abdomen and sometimes the ears.

* A secondary dermatitis may occur.

* Unusual in piglets.

The causes / factors

* It can be transmitted by lice or scabies mites.

* Skin abrasions.
