My 13lb chihuahua mix has a bumpy rash on his inner thigh

My 13lb chihuahua mix has a bumpy rash on his inner thigh and along the side of his neck. This started last night. The thigh bumps were small and pinkish. I couldn't see any color on the neck bumps. He was licking his inner thigh so frequently and that's how I noticed the rash. I put some 1% OTC hydrocortisone cream on the inner thigh to help him out until the vet visit. Now it looks more diffuse, flatter and like they are blending together. What is this rash? No changes in diet.

Hi my name is***** have a 5 yr old boxer and lately, off and on, he's been dripping saliva non-stop when it happens. We've read to give saltines or bread.

This has been going on off and on for about a month. Any ideas? Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: See above

My dog is drooling excessively he threw up earlier today and

My dog is drooling excessively he threw up earlier today and I found that he ate a package that is found in new shoes that says do not eat. When he threw up it was still all together in a package so it wasn't broken. The other thing was I just had my apartment fumigated. I was told that it was not harmful to dogs but he kept licking the floor so I'm not sure if I should be super concerned however he doesn't seem sick or low in energy so I'm not sure if this is something to be super concerned about.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?Customer: No thats about it. It what's the drooling that I was concerned with. He never drools.
