    Default Bumps on head

    Hello,
    I am new here, thank god I found this site at this time. I have a English Bulldog - Willie -, and he has started showing signs of bumps on his face and head. Almost like a scabbing. He shows no signs of it hurting or itching. I check him all the time for ticks and fleas. Bath him every 2 weeks. Have not changed his diet. I am lost on what this might be. If anyone can give me a clue, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Could they be bug bites? Where I am, it's black fly & mosquito season...poor Sgt. has been bit a few times, after about a day they kind of scab. Gone within a few days though. How long have they been there?

    In the reply box there are several icons to choose from for different actions. One that looks like a poster gives you the option to upload an image.

    Looks like it could be bites.... How old is he and are any bumps in other areas on him? Is fur coming of if you remove the scab?

    He is about 5 years old. There are no other bumps anywhere except for on his head.

    I'm thinking it could possibly be a staph infection.... does he have any bad allergies?

    Is he scratching at all? My girl was scratching and I found a FEW fleas right before I treated her. She was apparently allergic and reacted quickly to them.

    No allergies, fur does come off when scab is removed. No itching.
