    Question Scabs in ears?

    Hello bullie friends,
    I have a question, I will start with a little back story first. I have noticed the last few days Boadie's belly has had a rash, which happens some times ever sense he was a baby. I always calked it up to environmental allergies. So when I noticed this rash this time it was much worse than normal. I also have been noticing eye gunk in the mornings. So gave him a bath and a benadryl. It seemed to help a bit, his belly still looks a bit swollen but not so red. All of that seems like allergies and with he pollen flying through the air here that doen't seem to unusual. So this morning I noticed he was itching his ear, and I like to help itch those ears as I did I noticed that there are some small scabs in his ear. Only one has this. Could this be a reaction from allergies? Maybe he got it scratched playing with his bully friends. What could this be?

    Hard to tell what they are from, I'd just keep an eye on it and if he ear stars to smell I'd tale him to the vet.

    can you get a picture or give more description of the scabs?

    Banks sometimes gets what look/feel like scabs, but it is, lack of better word, crap that has hardened from her allergies. This time of year i check/clean her ears almost everyday

    They are scabs, I will try to get a pic but I can't find my camera. Upon better inspection they look like scrapes or scratches so maybe it is from the the dogs playing with each other. Should I try to use ear cleanser? I am afraid it will irritate it more and he will want to scratch at it more.

    use some peroxide to clean it up and stop any possible infection

    I would certainly clean the ears, the ears are also a part of bad allergies in bullies. Poor baby!
