    Default My bulldog has a rash? Help!

    Cash is 3 he has had welps before so we would always give him benadryl and it'd be gone by the next day but he's never really had anything that looks like this any idea of what it could be? I've gave him benadryl 2 days now and it's not helped at all. He does scratch some I've changed his bed, brushed him, gave him a bath nothing seems to help. No fleas or ticks. Any ideas? The rash is all over by the way.

    What does he eat? Has he eaten anything different?
    Looks a bit like Mange but hard to tell

    Anything he was exposed to… Febreeze, new shampoo, anything in the yard? It almost looks like where he would get in contact w/something. I would continue the benadryl and watch for hives. Maybe a cool bath to help relieve the itching...

    He eats Rachel Ray Nutrish it's the only thing he likes that's good for him and doesn't cause any problems. He hasn't eaten anything different.

    I never spray anything around him so no I haven't changed anything new and he has special medicated bulldog shampoo which never gives him any problem. He only goes out to poop and pee the right back in he was on the deck there in the photos so I could brush him out just gave him a cool bath about 30 minutes ago.

    Three possibilities that I can think of: A food allergy, contact dermatitis-(a new carpet,changed clothes soap,shampoo.....?) or possibly mange,as mentioned..

    Well a trip to the vets may be in order… it's hard to tell how this got started, but you want to rule out mange for sure. I had sprayed Febreeze on our couch and several hours later my bulldog jumped on the couch and got a rash. It doesn't have to be wet for them to have a reaction, sometimes it's the perfume.
