I have a mini schnauzer 8yrs old and I've noticed that when

I have a mini schnauzer 8yrs old and I've noticed that when I last shaved his back and upper leg that he had so many bumps all around. Some bumps seemed to pop as I was inspecting the area. After I bathed him in shampoo (oatmeal) his skin was softer, shiny and bumps started to go away. I see some now though that are sporatic ( one on leg, arm pit, stomach, one on chest and front leg) and they are different almost like a mosquito bite because it's raised but has a sort of dark scab at the top. What do you think this could be? How can it be treated? P.S He is on prescription food for bladder stones so his diet hasn't changed in 6years.JA: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No woundsJA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the dog's name?Customer: SparkyJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sparkly?Customer: Sometimes if he gets small bumps or lesions on his inner thigh it may have a yellow or greenish pus in it. These don't occur often but will suddenly pop up from time to time.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

My dog is losing large clumps of hair and has bare dry skin

My dog is losing large clumps of hair and has bare dry skin exposed. The skin on 50% of her body is very scaly and dry. She isn't itching it and doesn't seem to be bothered by it. However, it's very upsetting seeing these huge spots and she also has horrible dandruff. What should I do to help her?
