So far, not much with the benadryl. Bumps went down but not away, but thats been goin on all the time. Starrs had her bumps for about 2 in a half months now, this past month is when the flaking and scabbing started going on. And it all happend when she/a lil before she went into her and ramaind. Now, in the middle of this, she got her ear infection which im sure you mite have read. a yeast infection IN THE EAR lol :/ Doc said the bumps and infection happend because her body went "heywire" and is off balance.

so i thought maybe the yeast bacteria is whats floatin around on her skin? Dont know.

So he perscribed me the two meds i put in my other posts, a med to take the sweling of the bumps down, and her ear drops for her infection.

what was really weird too was that the area where she once had some small stiches, swelled up when all this started. They couldnt explain that either.

So, friday, im going to go out and just do some natural treatments like people have mentioned to me on here. Like the yogurt, flax seed and fish oils. Hair growth suppliments. Everything like that. Try to get something better going for her immune system other than the food i feed her.

to geisthexe:

i do thank you for your help - it put me at ease that you said not to panic. you said get athlete's foot cream; however, i had already gotten the previously mentioned medicated antiseptic cream and wound lotion. i found out that the active ingredients in both athlete's foot cream and the cream i already had were the same, so i'll just stick with what i spent money on already.

as for the cephalexin, i can't find them at any stores so i have to order them online, so i can't start that immediately.

in a couple days, i'll start on the vitamin E that you recommended, as well.

until then, we'll see how the cream i bought works.

thanks to everyone! much appreciated.

Im sure other peoples opions on certain topics mean just as much as yours. we seem to have the same issue with our dogs, i didnt know it was rude to go back and forth with our own info. people will do what they want with info. its great others help. some people have more knowledge then others yeah, but doesnt mean its better.

puppy problems are just too stressful. even if it's minor, they can't tell you what is wrong and it's frustrating.

i think that beyond the very helpful treatment suggestions, i also want to know the root of the problem so i can take preventative measures in the future. i would feel guilty if something i'm doing - feeding bad food, etc - is causing these problems.

anyway i'll keep updating, and starrsmoma, let me know what happens with yours, too.

(side note) to make matters worse, a big husky attacked peaches at the dog park today and now she has a scratch above her eye! so weird, she was just laying in the shade minding her own business and this dog trampled her.

i was also thinking maybe they could be heat bumps? im just throwing that out there as an idea. if i recall correctly the bumps that Red had seemed to come along whenever the outside temperature began to get hotter and dryer. since there hasnt been much percipitation in my area lately, could this affect my dogs skin? his bumps have been gone for about 2 weeks now but they are starting to come back. i found another one on his back last night. or could if be an infected hair? allergy to something in his food?

i have read that the heat can be a factor, especially since allergens in the air can get worse. change in weather can also create stress...

bumps all over pups head

Hi everyone, I rescued a mother & her 9 pups about 1 month ago. I found them behind a dumpster. the mother appeared to have mange, she has bald spots on her entire body & she was red & irritated. I have been treating her with the borax & peroxide mix & she seems to be responding well to the mixture, she is growing her hair back. The problem is her pups have lost their hair and have bumps all over their little heads. Only one pup is starting to lose her hair all over her body. The rest of the liter just have this condition on their heads. Some do have what look like "measles" all over there bodies. I'm pretty sure they all have mange! I have been treating the pups with the borax/peroxide mixture as well but their little heads still have these ugly bumps and a couple of them have swelling around their eyes.
Has anyone had this experience with pit bull pups before? I will submit a photo but I warn you, it isn't pretty. I feel horrible for these babies but I really can't afford to take them to a vet (9 pups would cost a arm & a leg)
I will submit a photo tomorrow & if anyone has every seen anything like this before, I sure would appreciate some advice.

Thanks
Cinish

Unhappy Bumps on back that look like scabs

I have a 7 month old pit named Peaches (not totally sure of her age as she is a rescued pound pup), and she has come down with some little bumps on the top of her head between her ears. I have been searching for any posts here and elsewhere but nothing that sounds quite on par with this. Sorry for the length, but I'm going to try to be thorough:

About 2 weeks ago we noticed 3 little bumps on her head which became scabs. They did NOT seem to bother her - no itching, and she didn't mind when we inspected them. The bumps were not filled with puss, nor did they have a 'head' or a black spot like acne. We picked off the scabs and the hair came off leaving tiny little bald spots that have not yet grown back.

At about the same time she had a very minor itchy redness under her front armpits. In addition, she had a bout of the 'liquid squirts' diarrhea - not sure if any of this was related. We used oatmeal shampoo and an oatmeal cream rinse and the itchiness went away almost immediately. We also decided to change her food from Iams proactive puppy to Orijen Regional Red because we were worried about allergies to poor dietary fillers.

After a trip to the vet, he told us the bumps on her head were folliculitis, and to keep an eye on it. He didn't seem too worried. For the diarrhea he gave us Centrine and Flagyl and told us to feed her rice and boiled chicken for the next couple days.

Just yesterday we started feeding her the Orijen food again and also gave her another bath because she had gotten really dirty at the dog park. Soft stool is back - but no liquid, thankfully. Today three more bumps showed up on her head in the same general area on her head.

I've been reading that bumps and hair loss can be anything including acne, demodectic or sarcoptic mange, folliculitis, allergies, stress, a diet too high in protein, etc.

Has anyone had symptoms like this? I paid a $226 vet bill for the diarrhea issue, which isn't completely fixed, and I don't want to bring her in to get a skin scrape sample if it's not needed and I'm just becoming neurotic.

Thanks!
My pit, Mojo, recently got these as well. We got him when he was 7 weeks old and he will be 10 years old in Sept.and weighs 100 lbs. They also started out as, about 3 or 4, bumps on his neck, near his head, and the scab and hair came off when I picked it. He has them down his back now. The only thing I can think of is I changed his food to Blue Buffalo Salmon, about 3 or 4 large bags ago, and brown rice so I just bought chicken and brown rice for Seniors . Maybe he's allergic to the salmon. He's never had a skin condition, until now, so i don't know. Let's keep each other posted until we figure it out. If it doesn't clear up, I am going to take him to the vet for it. He doesn't have any other symptoms.
