Original Question: So my dog has been getting bald spots and has approximately 3. He scratches and I feel like he’s making it worst. I think he’s allergic to something because he has little bumps. What can I put on his fur to make it grow back? And what can I use for the bumps? - Iliana
Without a specific diagnosis, it’s too difficult to suggest any specific treatments. There could be allergies but they could also be due to underlying infection with bacteria, yeast, or mange mites to name a few possibilities. Some treatments may actually make the hair loss or bumps worse. The hair will likely grow back once the underlying cause is identified and treated. A visit to your veterinarian is the next best step to get your pup back on track.
Best of luck,
