    Question Is this mange?

    So Tubby was at the vet's on Saturday as he has developped some bumps on his head. No redness or scabbing just crusty bumps. When the doctor examined him he noticed an infection in the wrinkles between his eyes and prescribed Fuciderm.
    Tubby's dad just sent me this picture of Tubby. From the research I've done looks like mange. We're waiting on a call back from the vet.

    To me it doesn't look like mange, but other's will chime in, maybe a staff infection?? Vegas had sores on his back legs and it turned out to be staff. I think mange is where they loose all their fur, not just sores.

    I'm thinking allergy or something bacterial like staph, doesn't look like mange but with these guys you never know.

    We ended up taking him in and she agreed with you guys that it looks like a bacterial infection. They did a skin scrapping so we will find out soon what it is. Poor little guy were set to leave for Florida on Friday and I feel like the worst mom ever leaving him

    yep, I was just chiming in, staph infection , sometimes called Dermatitis . @Chumely just went through this too. Jack and Griz get it sometimes. Both of them are just drying up small scab's now. I try to dry the heck out of em . I think lots of bully's get some sort of skin infections during June , July , August, the heat and grass's brings out the worst in most. Hang in there and let us know if you need any reassuring

    @Sherry do you have any suggestions on what I should be using to clean the affected area. Currently I use unscented baby wipes then apply the fuciderm
