    Default help please dog breaking out red bumps near mouth

    hi i recently noticed red bumps near the mouth of my 5month old bulldog. i first found one under his jawline and didnt think much of it but now i've spotted about 3 more all around his mouth. he is currently eating fromms beef fritatta. i'm not sure if he's allergic to it because his stooles are nice and firm. ill upload a picture from my phone asap. anyone have a clue what it could be?

    Sometimes they get "puppy acne'. Sometimes it is from their muzzle staying wet from drinking. Try drying his mouth after he drinks. You could put some desitin on the spots.

    I agree. Looks like acne. Keep his mouth as dry as possible. What type of bowls are you using?

    My bulldog used to get those. I found that by taking away cheap plastic or cheap rubber toys they went away. I hope this helps

    they will go away on their own, I always wipe Lola's mouth after she drinks water. I keep a dishtowel handy. You can also use douxo wipes or a bit of witch hazel to keep his muzzie dry. it's no big deal…they will go away

    My pup also had this. Even though I always dried his face after he drank water I just couldn't get it dry enough. I eventually switched his water to a lick bottle and it cleared right up. His cheeks and chin stay dry and no more outbreaks. Plus he loves to lick things so he loves the water bottle.

    Try all these recommendations, but watch it carefully. It can turn into a serious systemic infection, even though it doesn't look it. Vet did a skin scraping on Charley's last year and he needed very heavy antibiotics.
