    Thanks guys! We changed the earthborn a couple months ago (I haven't been on here in a while) He is now on nature's recipe. I've though about getting him an allergy test but I heard they were really expensive, does anyone know? And, @Saalwi I've wondered if it could be something outside, I was brushing him in the grass the other day and he didn't want to sit still (which isn't normal, he likes getting brushed) so I didn't know if it was bugs getting to him or what but he's also broken out on his stomach. Maybe we'll have to look at other foods. When we got him from his owners he did have a yeast infection but this doesnt look like what he had so i'm not sure

    Little dots - like hives, perhaps? Little raised, red dots?

    Bo gets those when he spends any extended time in the grass. Wipe downs (babywipes) and benedryl - if necessary only - is how I manage that one. The both get wiped down at the door, coming back in.

    Our first bulldog, Winnie, had severe skin allergies which caused her to lose hair in random places. After trying shampoos, special diets, sprays, etc - we didn't see a big change until our vet started her on Atopica. It is pricey but boy, did it change her life. She became virtually itch-free. I can't say enough good things about it. She was on a high dose (it's in pill form) and received it every other day.

    Thank you all for your input! I think we're going to try to change his food first so we'll see! He only has red spots because he sits and scratches, other than that there wouldn't be, it's just red.

    allergies make them smell/moult heavy,bathe him in malaseb and perhaps try and figure what hes allergic to,vet meds may clear the symptoms but never clear the actual problem im afraid,karen
