There is no simple answer to this question; however, it is probably a staph infection or skin allergy. It is difficult to provide a concrete answer to your question because dogs have sensitive skin. They can also get into a lot of different things, especially if you let them play outside without supervision.
A staph infection generally appears when your dog has been to the vet for a procedure. It could be this option if your dog has undergone surgery recently in that area. Bad needles can also lead to infections. Surgery does not have to occur in the area for a staph infection to be the issue, though most often the infection begins at the surgical stage.
If it is not a staph infection it could be a skin problem. Various dog breeds are known for their sensitive skin. This is why giving a dog a bath should be done on a schedule because you may find the soap and water creates issues if you wash them too frequently. If the issue is a simple skin infection due to allergy or sensitive skin there are a couple of ways for it to be treated. You may be able to purchase a cream or ointment from your vet to help clear up the issues.
Whether the ointment is purchased through the vet, you still need to go visit the vet. They will diagnose the issue of the red spots. The vet will then be able to give you suggestions in how to clear up the issue. Most pet stores will have a variety of creams and other dog related over the counter options too. You may discover the pet store has what you need, once you have a diagnosis of the issue your dog has, but you must get a diagnosis from a professional first.
Actually, the licking is a sign that it is bothering him. Licking or chewing an area that is irritated or painful is pretty common but the more they do so the worse the problem tends to get as they irritate it more. The rash is not normal.
You should have your vet take a look, it may be allergies or bacterial or fungal infection or something. They can at least give you some good cream to help with the irritation like Derma-vet or appropriate antibiotics if your pup needs them.It wouldn't usually be expensive. Probably just an exam and whatever your pup needs. Hope your baby is feeling better soon.
If your dogs are not itching or licking the affected area then it means that these red bumps are no causing any problems. It is normal for the dogs of 6 months to 1 year age dogs to have pimples. These might be simply pimples. These are like acne in young boys and girls. It can be treated with topical antibiotic. So, visit to your local vet to get proper diagnosis and treatment.
You didn't mention how big the spots are... But given that you did mention humidity, I'm going to guess it's a heat rash... Or irritation from the area being damp for a prolonged period of time. wash and dry the area well, and rub in a little hydrocortisone cream a couple of times a day... Do what ever necessary to keep the area dry until it's fully healed to prevent a secondary infection... If it already looks infected, use a triple antibiotic cream (polysporin, nepsporin...) several times a day instead.
I noticed my boxer has dime size red round spots with the center being normal color skin on his genital area. There is about 10 of them. They are not raised and don't seem to bother him besides some licking in the area. He has been outside more often due to the nice weather. Can anyone answer to me what these are and if I should be worried?
Could be an infection you need to take him to the vets
My dog got the rash a couple days ago bt seem 2 get worse 1 spot has made the skin go raw what could it be
It sounds like maybe your dog got some insect bites on his penis. That would explain why he would be licking it a lot for the last few days. You might try to prevent him from licking as it is probably only causing further irritation. If you are in doubt you should always seek the advice of a qualified vet though!
Yes that is not normal.. Is your dog a female? If you noticed that the genital area of your dog is some kind of red well it only means one thing and that means your dog is on heat.. She needs a male dog to mate..
