Default Awkward and clueless

As I was playing with Nelson tonight he rolled over and I randomly noticed a red bump on each of his nuts. I'm not really sure how long he's had this, it's the first time I noticed it. Each spot looks very similar to the way poison ivy looks on a human. Has anyone ever seen this or heard of this? It doesn't seem to be bothering him but its definitely not normal. I took a pic, please give me any info if you have some...Awkward and clueless-imageuploadedbypg-free1356925843.529846.jpg

I dot really have any advice but Rosco has gotten one that looks similar, (hard to tell from pic) but more like a pimple I put some neosporin on it and it was gone within a week. Good luck!

Jaxon had one before and it had got really red. It didn't seem to bother him as much as it bothered me. I took him into the vet and they said it was a bite of some sort. I put some antibiotic ointment on it and it went away in a few days.

I just checked it again today and its much bigger and redder. I haven't seen him bothered by it at all. If I put neosporin on it, it's not poisonous if he licks it, is it?Awkward and clueless-imageuploadedbypg-free1357009558.967144.jpg

Ouch. I would take him to the vet to be sure if I were in your shoes. No it's not poisonous.
