yorkie developed small bb size bumps on skin

Can you describe them a little more? Where on his body are they? Are there many of them all over, or just a few? Are they red or the colour of the rest of his skin? Are they painful to touch? Do they bleed or discharge? How long have they been present, and how fast did they appear? Do they seem to be growing? If you have a digital camera, post a picture using the tree icon.

I'm unsure based on this description, so I'm going to opt out and let some other experts look at the question. Best of luck!

Hi there
It always hard to say for sure what is going on with out seeing your baby. However, it sounds like a skin infection which requires antibiotics to resolve. Since his condition is spreading he should be seen by your vet for treatment. The worse it gets it may become harder to get rid of. After your vet sees the bumps he/she will be able to discuss possible causes for them. Either way it sounds like he will benefit from a course of antibiotics. Thanks Dr. Jenn
