    Are they pressure sores? Moles?

    Where are they on the dog? They don't sound normal to me as you describe them.

    That dog needs to go to the vet asap. It may not be serious... but it very well could be. I have never heard of that.

    Are you going to take the dog to the vets? I'm not sure how the two responses helped.

    I'd get to a vet asap. You need to know the type of infection, if it is an infection to know what antibiotic to use. Also it could be something else other than an infection such as cancer or an autoimmune disease.

    I wanna know who told you these dogs get this sometimes, I have never heard of this before, I would get to the vet ASAP it could be very serious. It could be minor but it does not sound minor, it could be cancer, it could be bed sores, it could be tumors, it could be infection, but whatever it is needs to be seen by a vet, and if you cannot afford one then you really should not have the dog in the 1st place. I am in collage on a budget and I did not think twice forking out 150$ for my dog yesterday on a vet bill because he is sick.

    I feel bad for that poor dog. Medicating it without knowing the issue is never a good idea! You could also just be masking the real issue with meds.

    I think you said I don't know how to take care of my dogs, not sure though... most of what you said makes no sense. A dog is sick, it goes to the vet, are you a vet?

    I'd still have a vet look at it...... no one can tell you on the internet what's wrong with your dog without examining it, especially if they're not a trained professional.
