    Default Red Bumps?? :(

    Hi All! So over the past couple days Winston has developed these red bumps all under his chin and by his nose, his face also seems to be very red. I am not sure if its an allergy, acne, or an infection! It seems to be better when he wakes up in the morning and worse at night. I have tried Witch Hazel but it doesn't seem to be clearing it up. I used stainless steel bowls and wash them before every feeding. He is on NVI limited ingredient Lamb and has been on it since November. Could he have all of a sudden developed an allergy to it?? I am going to post some pictures below, any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!!

    could be environmental. sarah has them to on and off. doesnt have to be the food since hes been on it since november. he could be outside sniffing something he is allergic to or just sniffing the air. sarah is also worse at night time with her allergies right now. i put hydrocortisone cream on hers and it seems to help and i also give her benadryl. one per 25 pounds. when i give sarah a new pill i give her a bit to see if it agrees with her. let us know whats happening.

    Thank you! He is ok with benedryl and I have been giving him one a day, I was scared to give him more then that because it makes him sooo sleepy. He's 50 pounds so it would be two?? Could the one not be enough? I was thinking environmental too because he loves to shove his head in the grass now! That's his new thing. I will try the cortisone too and see if that helps. I was hoping it wasn't his food because we already know hes allergic to carrots and its very difficult to find food that doesn't have it! I will keep an eye on it and keep you posted! Thanks again!!

    yes you could give more i give sarah one and half and if needed the other half depending on her allergies. and i dunno if youve tried it but zyrtec works better imo. i was told 1/2 in the am and 1/2 in the pm but ive heard you can give more. dunno. just a suggestion and zyrtec is not as sedating either.

    i do what you do and use stainless steel bowls, wash his face often. I use baby wipes instead of stridex because the stridex made it worse. I am hoping that this is just a phase. It is getting a little bit better. Sometimes it may get real raw and bleed. so far watson's haven't bled yet.

    I know he loves to dig that chin into everything so it doesn't help. benadryl did not make it any better for Watson

    Wash his chin, dry and then put a thin layer of Neosporin, Desitin or even vaseline. You need a moisture barrier to protect the skin from whatever is irritating it. Wash his water bowl frequently because if he's like my Wilson he'll slobber into his water bowl.

    Thanks for the tip. I have some vaseline so I will try to put a thin layer on next time I wash his face.

    Hey there! We are still battling the acne! Its gotten so much better since our switch to Fromm Beef! I clean it 3x a day with babywipes/then noxema pads. I always dry his face after he drinks/eats. Stainless steel bowls. It could be allergies or just acne. I went to the vet the other day and he gave us animax which has made such a difference in 2 days already!
