    Unhappy Pimple-like rash on neck, stomach, and under rear legs?!

    My 3 mo old bully has broken out in a rash!! I first noticed it on her neck - like where her collar goes - and it's like thick pimples. There were only a few, but her collar hasn't bothered her before. It's leather and nothing has changed with it - and she hardly ever wears it. Then I saw her stomach, right by her rear legs - ALL broken out in the same rash!

    I'm stumped as to what would cause it on both her neck and stomach. I had recently had problems with her peeing in her crate, and was advised to purchase Nature's Miracle because my laundry detergent (which I have used for her bedding with no issues many times) may not be getting the urine enzymes out. I spritzed her blankets with it and let them dry before returning them to her crate. I noticed the rash the next day, so I assumed it must be from that! So I instead purchased the Laundry kind of Nature's Miracle and rewashed all her bedding with that. The rash has stayed the exact same (the same pimples in the same spots) but the crate peeing stopped, so there's that. I also have been putting hydrogen peroxide on the rash daily, but to no avail! I also called my local pet store and they said Nature's Miracle was one of the most mild pet cleaners and that it most likely was not the cause.

    The other thing was that she used a Pet Loo (fake grass patch) to potty on, and I had washed her grass that day. Maybe I didn't rinse it as well as I thought and the cleaner I used irritated her tummy. BUT that doesn't explain why it's on her neck! I don't let her roll or play on her Loo and she's supervised when using it.

    The rash doesn't hurt or itch her at all. She hasn't been scratching at it, and I can touch it with no reaction from her. What could it be? Has anyone had anything similar with their babies?

    It's been like this since about Friday, I'll be taking her to the vet tomorrow, but I am just curious!

    I've no ideas for you --- and 53 other folks looked at this post and thought the same thing, apparently.

    On the belly, Bo gets little dot like bumps which aren't zits at all but little hives; reactions to chicken. Cut grass gives a similar -- but larger -- bump. He does not however, get bumps on his neck - ever. So that one bothers me a bit. Could be food, could be the soap or the plastic loo --- could be lots of things or nothing at all. That's the supreme challenge here and you're doing it right via the process of elimination. A look from the vet to make sure it's not something serious and then, start watching everything that goes in / on / near the pup. Good luck. We've all been thru something similar, I'm certain.

    Even though Nature;s Miracle is mild does not mean it would not have an effect on her...... I would remove it totally and rewash her bedding in hot water with what you used previously and see if it goes away.

    Try hydrocortizone on the rash instead of peroxide.

    Good call. Has an anti-itch agent.

    Thank you both for your replies! The vet said it's a staph infection. He gave me antibiotics and told me to come back in 5 days if the bumps aren't gone. So strange though! He said it just comes from the skin membrane!

    Scarlet had this when she was young. I took her to the vet and they told me it was a type of puppy-hood mange. Not contagous, just something they can get if their immune system is batteling an infection of some sort. Vet gave her a special bath every week for 3-4 weeks. Vet also said we should not have a problem once her immune system is back in check and she gets older. Scarlet is 1yr. 7m now and we have not had another problem like that.

    Bumps are gone! Thankfully! Matilda was put on the antibiotic Simplicef and the rash disappeared in about a week. He also gave me a special shampoo that seemed to help a lot with the already existing bumps!

    does she play rough with another pup by chance? Teeth can cause little tears in the skin which can get this way. Miila had them all inside her legs when her and Cutty first started playing cuz it was over the top I think. I took pics even and posted here. Think the vet did say it was a form of an infection caused by lesions. Watched the pups carefully and turned out that was from Cuttys teeth where he would grab Miila's turkey legs and tug. lol Pics would help.

    I'm sorry this is happening to your baby! Matilda's rash got worse and worse until we got antibiotics. The vet said that with bullies, staph infections just come from the skin membrane. There is nothing that can really be done besides antibiotics Good luck! The drugs were only about $10 at my vet... (however, the 30 seconds that the vet came in to tell me it was a staph infection was $40... ugh)
