    Usually an allergy will make them a redder pink, if that makes since. Like @2BullyMama said, a pic would help.

    Welcome!!

    Allergy pink is more of a red color - if it's yeast then their fur will turn red.

    White bully's skin are typically a pale pink color.

    The first picture here is when curly had some food allergies. The second is normal pink around his mouth.

    Hi great question. My female Blossom is also white, and she has allergies to chicken, salmon, corn and grains. When she has allergy symptoms and it affects her skin, she usually gets a pink face, especially on her chin, and her ears get pink and will feel warm, she also gets pink feet, and will lick her paws a lot. When she doesn't have allergy symptoms, she just has a tinge of pink showing through her fur. It shows mostly on her belly, and on her face, but not on her body.

    Hello,

    Her food is fine, she eats Taste of the Wild. In my area it gets a bit warm, I put the a/c to keep her cool. It's Jan and feels like summer here.

    Koozer has a white head and face and his natural pink color definitely shows through. He gets a little pinker with heat, like after a walk. If your baby is looking really red, consider allergies. Good luck!

    I've wondered that too about Brie. Is the a natural pink for her or allergy? Don't know if you can see it as she is snoozing atm.

    @lisabear if you are referring to the pink on her nose, that looks normal

    When skin is irritated, it looks irritated just like on humans. Red, blotchy, and if they are licking, probably signs of allergies
