Friend, the bumps you are describing are consistent with a condition called "urticaria." Basically, the skin is reacting to an underlying allergy. So, he is having an allergic reaction either to something he came in contact in the environment or he ate. I would recommend you start him on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 3 tablets every 12 hours for the next 3-5 days. You can buy Benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy. If the bumps are not better by tomorrow I would have him checked by the family veterinarian for a hands on examination, he may need additional prescription medication not available over the counter.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
