Hi All, me again! My dog has these bumps every where. I thought they were mosquito bites but now I’m thinking they aren’t. He was eating raw alpaca and I cut it off because he seemed to not do well on it. He’s now on rabbit, before the alpaca he was on rabbit and did great. The bumps are flakey. Any thoughts? The picture I’ve attached is the worse one he has the others are much smaller but essentially, they all look like this, bumps with flakey dryness. They also seem to really itch him. 4C9C6A68-8394-4330-9B0E-92E66FAFB3F2.jpeg

Does look like it could be ringworm. Get a tube of NuStock,wear surgical gloves and rub it in the spots. Read the directions on the tube.

Update: took Nikolas to the vet. The bumps/scans on his back are not mange, thank goodness! The vet diagnosed him with pyoderma/allergic dermatitis. He was given an antibiotic and an injection for the itching. The scab on his chest though she said she believes to be ringworm and waiting for results.
