Orson has had the same problem off and on all his life (he's 14 months), he would get
these red bumps all over his inner legs and belly and chest. They were really red, like
irritated pimples and would come on suddenly, and then turned into scabs. They never bothered him,
no pain or itch, just looked un-pleasant. Don't worry too much, my vet would put Orson
on Keflex (anti-biotic) to clear the bumps up. They suggested he was allergic to something,
but of course they couldn't tell me what...said alot of dogs are just on and off Keflex all their lives!!
I switched Orson's food to DVP duck/potato for allergies and he hasn't had any more red bumps, the
only time it has happened in a month was when he rolled around in wet grass (so that is what leads me
to believe it's allergic reactions).
But if your dog isn't in pain and not itching, don't freak out...most bullies have skin irritations but it's not mange(that itches).
Take him to vet and they will treat his scabs with anti-biotics and the bumps will clear.
Hopefully it's just allergies, sounds exactly what was wrong with my dog!!
Good luck.

It took me a while, but I went back and read through this entire board...
post after post and there are ALOT. :shock: But I learned soooo much about my bully!!
If it wasn't for this board, Orson would still be on anti-biotics and i would have
never learned that bullies were so skin sensitive and have a terrible time
with allergies. I found lots of the dogs on here have had similar skin problems with bumps and shedding...
I thought Orson was a freak for shedding so much...but it's just the breed.
The good advice on here as been a life saver! Try the food change, could be exactly
what he needs...still go get anti-biotics for his scabs, sometimes those red bumps turn into
a staph infection.
