Default Weird Bumps on my Boxer

2 days ago we found weird bumps on the left leg and upper back of my boxer.


not sure if that picture helps.

4 days ago the dog was given a bath with Oatmeal Shampoo, however i dont think this was the cause? Any Idea's?


What Boxer Friendly Shampoo does anyone suggest?

Any one have an idea on the bumps?
Or how to get rid of them ?


anything would be helpfull!!!

Thanks!

Those IMO look like an alergic reaction. *My hanna get them a lot. * Shampoo is not going to so much except dry the skin out. * Do they dry up, then flake off leaving spots of baldness? *If so - allergy!

I agree with the allergic reaction. Harley got those same bumps when I washed his blanket. I started using detergent that is for allergies-All free and clear- and he hasn't had them since. Almost forgot, he got them one other time, but I'm not sure what caused those. The vet said to give Benedryl -1 tab. every 6 hours- and that worked for Harley. Best of luck! Hope he gets better soon.

My boy get these too. I've posted about them here but didn't have a picture. nobody really responded so i haven't really worried about them. I'm not sure if its allergies or has something to do with heat or sun. I've ruled out grass and other things in the outside environment by changing up where we walk. he seems to have more of them after a walk in the sun or heat. Could be a flea allergy as we are battling them.
the best i can describe them is they look like mosquito bites. they are big enough to raise the hair, he gets them mostly on his back and top of neck. they look exactly like your photo. they don't seem to bother him. he never tries to scratch or bite at them. sometimes they go away by the next day sometimes they don't. sometimes they do get a scab on them and there will be a spot with no hair, but most times they don't.
when mom had him she asked me about them i told her it looked like he was getting to ants or something. of course i was wrong. the only thing common to my house and hers is fleas and the food he was eating

edit: i need to add that they are worse in the dark parts of his back. they rarely appear in the white but they do occasionally.

I use a topical mild steroid spay called Genesis on them. * *My Hanna has bad allergies, and these bumps only happen in the summertime. * We have them under control but something sets them off for her - they dont itch her, but they are rather annoying.

I get it from the vet -

The issue with Hanna is she will have an outbreak. * The would be all over her back and in the summer on top of her head. *As they healed you could literally flake the dry skin off and the fur would come with it. * *Hence why I use a fish oil with Vit E. * She is good right now, there are a couple of bumps, had her at the Vet many many of times for it, they dont seem overly concerned. *Will give me a scrip for Temeril-P but thats about it.

Diet, immune system boosters and excercise is why I try to do.

thanks. BTW i have been visiting another forum and there seem to be several people from here over there. some of them are obvious because they use the same name, avatar and sig.
