Welcome and thanks for asking your question, I am sorry to learn Frank is having skin problems. My name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Are the lumps like mosquito bites (welts) or is the skin scabby?
2- Is he itchy?
3- How much does he weigh?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

not scabby just lumps


he is very itchy


weighs about 35 kilo

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 11 months ago.
Paul, the lumps you are seeing on Frank is called "urticaria." This is a skin reaction secondary to an allergic reaction either to something Frank ate or came into contact. This is what you can do:

1- Start him on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 1.5 (one & half) tablet every 8 hours for the next 5 days. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any human pharmacy.
2- If the lumps are not better by tomorrow have him examined by family veterinarian he may need additional medications.
3- If you notice difficulty breathing or vomiting have him checked today by ER veterinarian. Otherwise, continue on Benadryl as described above.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
