I'm sorry to hear of this with Shilo. I believe that you're describing eosinophilic dermatitis on his belly skin. Can you upload a photo(s) of it to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ Please check that the photo(s) is in focus prior to uploading it.
