    Default yeast infection or skin allergy???






    i saw [replacer_a]00 post about her pup on the head so I checked Major and noticed that he had similar symptoms. In the 1st picture, he has been having these bumps in the last 3 months, but we thought it was just the weather that irritated it. Now, in the second picture, you can see the hair loss where the bumps were and dried scabs underneath. The last 2-3 weeks, he started to get the bumps on top of his head with addition of an odor. It seems more severe than the body bumps because the head ones are red, wet, and hair loss. So now, I am not sure if these symptoms are correlated to each other. Today We tried to bathe him with DOUXO shampoo and soaked him with apple cider vinegar. Tomorrow he will be visiting the vet, but they will probably just say he is allergic again; but he has been on the same diet since we got him 10 months ago. *Fromm gold holistic with yogurt/extra virgin olive oil*

    His feces is firm/normal in color and doesn't have tear stains or any other symptoms.

    If you have an idea on what is going on with Major, please let me know. Thank you have a great day

    Hmm u stumped me bcuz the scabs u described sound like staph, the open wet spots sound like hot spots, n the bumps on the side do look like hives, n the smell u mentioned (if its fritoy) sounds like yeast!!!! Which all indicate allergies!!!!! Hopefully someone else will give u better insight shortly lol keep us updated though please!!!!

    Would also like to know what the vet says. We just got a 5 month old female puppy and she came with some bumps on her belly. Their vet said allergic reaction bc they sprayed her bedding with Lysol :/ then when we removed her collar found some large crusty scabs under it. We have switched her food and been giving her baths but the scabs actually span from neck to tail and if you mess with them they becom wet and the hair comes out with the scab. The only smell is like a stinky dog smell but it starts very soon after her bath. No itching at all. Thank you for any advice.

She needs antibiotics n prolly steroids to clear it up so a trip to the vet should be in ur future!!!!! What food do u feed her??

    Hm I'm sure ur vet will do a skin scrape if not I'd ask for one to determine exactly what it is but it does sound to me like a mixture of the three n it would be caused by allergies!!!! A lot of bulldogs r allergic to poultry as well as grains (flaxseed, wheat etc) a reaction that bad would have me saying its gotta be his food!!!!! I'm sure they would know more than me so ill try to tag some others in here that may be able to offer u more help

    Unfortunately I can not see the pictures cause I am at work and the images are blocked. So going of what is written -- it sounds like a staph infection, which is cause by a weakened immune system and that is usually from allergies. However, the allergies could be environemetal -- grass, tress, weed, dust, etc.

    If it is staph, the vet will give you a high dosage of antibiotics and Major will be on them for a long time... 3-4 weeks.

    GOOD luck and keep us posted.
