    Hi to every one
    Approximately 1 month ago there appeared some spots on my dog's skin and it spreads
    I visited his vet and he told me this is an allergy and he told me you have to find out what is lol :))
    I did not give him his usual dog food for 3-4 days however it did not stop still on his skin
    Would you mind please help me ?

    They get staph infections from their allergies. He may need antibiotics. Definitely will need frequent antibacterial/antifungal bathes. PetSmart sells a good one with a picture of an English bulldog on the front. Also, if it is Demodectic mange Bravecto can help with that.

    Is he very itchy?

    He did not have it before like this
    He is 2.years of pitbull and he had only an allergic reaction to chicken I know
    He doesnt scratch himself I mean he is like he is not aware of them on his skin and the skin is like a wavy land when touching the both sides each of it approximately 1 cm diameter or less
    I added some more photos

    I thank you for your reply

    Take him to a dermatologist and have them run allergy panels to determine what it is.

    You're welcome, until you can get him in to the Vet. I would definitely bathe him and leave the shampoo on for the recommended 10 min. Then rinse for 10 min. Also, I wipe mine down with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth everytime they come in from spending any significant time outside. Focus really well on the paws and inbetween the toe pads. If it is infection it can get bad really quickly. Also, steroids may be prescribed but then they have to be off of them for six weeks before allergy tests can be done.

    I see you are not in the USA so you might not be able to get an antibacterial/antifungal shampoo at a store? maybe you can get it online?

    I just want to add that they can do a culture, if it is an infection, to determine exactly which antibiotic would kill the infection. Mine got the same antibiotic over and over again until she got an antibiotic resistant infection. Then we took her to a Dermatologist and they did a culture and there was only one antibiotic that would kill the infection.
